New microscope can take 3D images of cells while working in a natural environment

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

To observe living cells through a microscope, a sample is usually squeezed onto a glass slide. It then lies there calmly and the cells are observable. The disadvantage is that this limits how the cells behave and it only produces two-dimensional images.

Researchers from UiT The Arctic University of Norway and the University Hospital of North Norway (UNN) have now developed what they are referring to as the next generation . The new technology can take pictures of much larger samples than before, while living and working in a more natural environment.
