Advantages of STED imaging using LBL-Dye M715

STED (stimulated emission depletion) microscopy offers several advantages over confocal microscopy:

  1. Higher resolution: Achieves super-resolution imaging beyond the diffraction limit of light, allowing for sharper and more detailed images.
  2. Improved contrast: Enhances contrast by eliminating fluorescence from the outer regions of the excitation spot, resulting in clearer images of fine structures.
  3. Faster imaging: Allows for faster acquisition times compared to confocal microscopy, enabling the imaging of dynamic processes with higher temporal resolution.
  4. Multicolor imaging: Efficiently separates fluorescent signals from multiple dyes, facilitating multicolor imaging of complex biological systems.
  5. Reduced photobleaching and phototoxicity: Uses lower excitation power, minimizing photobleaching and phototoxic effects on samples.

STED microscopy provides unique advantages for high-resolution imaging with improved contrast and faster acquisition.
