Interferometric Photoactivated Localization Microscope (IPALM)



Capable of unsurpassed optical resolution, this system is a clone of the original prototype developed at the Janelia Research Campus, but offers 3 color capability. IPALM combines photoactivated localization microscopy with single-photon, simultaneous multiphase interferometry providing <20 nm resolution in all three dimensions. This microscope is currently located in the Taraska Lab and will move to AIM once the facility is operational.
