Novel fluorescent molecules for optical nanoscopy with molecular resolution

Super-resolution fluorescence microscopy (nanoscopy), which can now even accomplish molecular resolutions, requires novel fluorescent molecules that meet the specific requirements of these techniques. The design of smaller photoactivatable fluorescent molecules improves the labelling of proteins in living cells and enables straightforward imaging even with the latest nanoscopy concepts. We have developed a new family of versatile photoactivatable fluorescent dyes for high resolution imaging.
