Super-Resolution Applications with the Nanoimager.
Extracellular vesicles (EVs) play key roles in cell-to-cell communication. EVs can cross biological barriers (such as the blood-brain barrier) and get internalized into the cell with a high degree of specificity.
Viral particles vary greatly in size, but are typically below the resolution limit of conventional light microscopy. Recently, super-resolution techniques have been employed to study their mechanistic and functional characteristics at a single-molecule level.
