Electron microscopes get ability to add hues to high-res images
S.R. Adams et al/Cell Chemical Biology 2016
Electron microscopy is finally getting its Kodachrome moment.
The high-powered scopes can now produce images that simultaneously highlight different molecules in different colors, scientists report online November 3 in Cell Chemical Biology. That’s helpful for researchers hoping to visualize the complex structures of cells or tissues — such as connections between brain cells, shown here.
