A clearer view on biology
Scientists develop a tool that sharpens up microscope images
EMBL Group Leader Ernst Stelzer with the SPIM technology.
A deconvolution algorithm developed and applied by Peter Verveer and Ernst Stelzer and his group at EMBL now greatly improves the resolution of SPIM. This development provides new opportunities for studying sub-cellular processes in large living specimen. SPIM will also likely allow studies of live tissue under physiological conditions paving the way for the use of modern cell biology in clinically relevant research.
