It has developed a system for capturing moving images of a single cell structure, with the higher resolution has been obtained so far.
Through the tactic of identifying molecules using compressed sensing, this new method provides the necessary spatial resolution for that purpose, and a time resolution faster than previously possible.
Despite many achievements in the field of ultra-high resolution microscopy that have materialized in recent years thanks to technological advances in spatial resolution to image living cells has remained a challenge due to the need for time resolution high.
Now, Lei Zhu, Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), and Bo Huang, University of California, San Francisco, both institutions in the U.S., have developed a strategy using advanced ultra-high resolution microscopy to distinguish cellular features are an order of magnitude smaller than the tiniest it was possible to see before.
Now, therefore, be feasible to use the high spatial resolution microscopy together with a temporal resolution of the order of seconds or even fractions of a second to a very wide field of vision, so you can follow the development of cellular processes much more dynamic of what was possible so far with the best technology available. This will allow the scientific community previously inaccessible information and solve some biological mysteries. It should be noted that much of the knowledge about the life of a cell comes from the ability of laboratories to see small structures within the cell.
