    Description

    ELYRA superresolution microscopes are about choice: with ELYRA S.1 and superresolution structured illumination (SR-SIM) you image fine structural details while remaining free to label your samples with conventional dyes.
    Use ELYRA P.1 and superresolution photoactivated localization microscopy (PALM) for endogenously-expressed photo-switchable fluorescent proteins.
    Capture highly resolved structures of a whole cell in 3D in just one shot, while treating your sample so gently it stays fit for long-term observation. Your ELYRA system lets you reveal the ultrastructure of your object of interest, count molecules to quantify your results and see the arrangement of proteins within a structural context.
