Iterative Expansion Microscopy

Check out new iterative Expansion Microscopy published in Nature Methods. Samples are physically magnified ~20x, compared to previous factor of ~4.5x. This new method is validated for visualization of synaptic proteins and the structure of dendritic spines. Imaging was performed using a Nikon Ti-E inverted microscope with 40x 1.15 NA water immersion objective.

Anchored But Not Internalized: Shape Dependent Endocytosis of Nanodiamond

New research in Scientific Reports examines how morphology affects the endocytosis of nanoparticles, a critical step for applications ranging from intracellular sensing to drug delivery. They found that round nanodiamond is endocytosed to a greater degree than “prickly”-shaped nanodiamond. Super-resolution imaging was performed using a Nikon N-SIM structured illumination system.
