New era in Super-Resolution
Achieves acquisition speeds of up to 15 fps, enabling fast biological processes to be captured at twice the spatial resolution of conventional light microscopes (up to 115nm in XY).
N-SIM E is a streamlined, affordable super-resolution system that provides double the resolution of conventional light microscopes. Combining N-SIM E and a confocal microscope allows you the flexibility to select a location in the confocal image, and easily switch to view it in super-resolution, enabling the acquisition of more detail.

N-SIM S can acquire super-resolution images with a large field of view of 66 µm square. This larger imaging area enables very high throughput for applications/samples that benefit from larger fields of view, such as a neurons, reducing the amount of time and effort required to obtain data.
Plasma membrane of B16 melanoma cell labeled with YFP
Enables Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence observation at double the resolution of conventional TIRF microscopes, facilitating a greater understanding of molecular interactions at the cell surface.
The 3D-SIM mode generates structured illumination patterns in three dimensions to deliver a two-fold improvement in lateral and axial resolutions.

Slice reconstruction is suitable for imaging living cells at specific depths, as it allows axial super-resolution imaging with optical sectioning at 300 nm resolution. Stack reconstruction, based on Gustafsson’s theory, is suitable for acquisition of volume data as it can image thicker specimens with higher contrast than slice reconstruction.
