Collaborative work with the University of Cambridge demonstrates the power of the super-resolution imaging technique dSTORM (direct Stochastic Optical Reconstruction Microscopy).

This technique uses fluorescent dyes to label the position of molecules of interest within cells and can potentially 'see' individual cellular structures at the nanoscale resolution - much smaller than the lower limit of conventional microscopes.
