Stimulated emission depletion (STED) microscopy is an accurate process allowing super resolutive cell imaging. STED microscopy overcomes the limits of standard confocal laser scanning microscopes. In 2014, Stefan W. Hell was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry, along with Eric Betzig and William Moerner (USA) for the development of this breakthrough technique. STED offers exceptional experimental conditions for visualization of cellular events at unprecedented levels. These levels can only be reached with high quality reagents. Here, let’s review some top quality research antibodies and fluorochromes validated for STED applications, and browse a gallery with outstanding cell images.
