Title: Rescan Confocal Microscopy in Live Cell Imaging

Abstract

The Rescan Confocal Microscope (RCM) is a new microscopy technology that is able to image with super-resolution (170nm) while only requiring very low light intensities. This makes the technology especially interesting for live cell imaging since it causes a very low phototoxicity compared to conventional systems. The technology relies on a rescanning device that projects the image on either a CCD- or sCMOS camera.
