Fluorescent dye could enable sharper biological imaging

Recently, Dr. Oliver Bruns joined the new Helmholtz Pioneer Campus, where he aims to visualize processes in living organisms. Together with his former colleagues from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), he demonstrates how this might succeed. In a recent 'PNAS' publication they combined an already approved fluorescent dye with latest technology and received remarkable images.
