When preparing a sample for STORM microscopy, one of the most important factors to consider is the choice of fluorophore. The ability to accurately localize single molecules is dependent on the use of fluorescent molecules that stochastically switch between a fluorescent “on” state and a dark “off” state – a photophysical behavior that is often referred to as blinking.
The Biophysical Society (BPS) Annual Meeting brings together scientists working on a wide range of topics and attracts participants across different disciplines like physics, biology, chemistry, and computational sciences. The BPS annual meeting, therefore, offers a unique opportunity to engage in interesting conversations and get exposed to scientific questions from various perspectives. We also find that it is a great place for interdisciplinary interactions, especially between biologists and physicists, which leads to a better understanding of each other’s needs and research challenges.
On Sunday you may have seen that ONI made it into The Sunday Times’ Top 10 Disruptors to watch. It’s a big deal for the team here - our hard work has paid off. But most of all we’re very proud to be rubbing shoulders with the other companies that made it.
