Two-color confocal and MINFLUX images of Tom20 (green) and mitochondrial DNA (red) stained with sCy5 and CF680 in mammalian cells using indirect immunolabeling. The two fluorophores were distinguished by ratiometric detection strategy. Note the dissimilar labeling density of the two imaged structures.
2-color 2D STED image of a cleared adult kidney sample of a rat. Shown is an image of a renal corpuscle showing Nephrin (red, abberior STAR 635P) structures inbetween the Podocin slits (green, AlexaFluor594).
Sample was prepared by D. Unnersjö Jess and H.G. Blom @ KTH Stockholm, Sweden.

“Which abberior microscope should I get?”
molecule-size 3D resolution
Our MINFLUX is the first commercially available fluorescence light microscope with 3D resolution capabilities down to the size of a molecule. For the first time, you can examine features over all lengthscales between microns and one nanometer. Furthermore, MINFLUX offers molecule-tracking at unprecedented speeds.
So, if you’re looking to unravel structure and dynamics in the tiny molecular machinery of a cell, there is no alternative to MINFLUX.
MINFLUX can be combined with STED and confocal microscopy through our MODULES.

“What’s “facility” about FACILITY line?”
rocks the microscopy
The STEDYCON is a new class of microscope. It converts your conventional epifluorescence stand into a versatile four-color confocal and 2D-STED nanoscope within minutes. No need to invest in a confocal system – just use your existing widefield microscope. The STEDYCON is barely the size of a shoebox, and yet it delivers stunning images with 30 nm resolution, which can be further increased by deconvolution. It’s so easy to set up and operate even for new users.
If you’re looking for a compact, plug&play STED and confocal microscope that beginners can use after only a few minutes of training, the STEDYCON is for you!
The STEDYCON can be traded in for any of our other platforms.
