Short nameSTORM
Full nameSingle Molecule Localization Microscope

The STORM (Stochastic Optical Reconstruction Microscopy) is a home-built microscopy system that allows researchers to perform three-color, 3D single molecule localization microscopy of fixed samples. The system has three laser lines (488, 561 and 647 nm) for imaging conventional fluorophores and a 405 nm laser line to stimulate blinking of the fluorophores. STORM is a super-resolution technique with a resolution of approximately 10-20 nm, which is about 10x better than conventional confocal or widefield microscopy.

Costs: 31.50 euro/h. Training: 63.50 euro/h.
