Your journey to microscopy expertise
Are you ready to begin your dSTORM journey?
The ONI Training Kit™ for dSTORM is designed to provide a simple workflow for new and existing users to learn the fundamentals of single-molecule localization microscopy.
The kit enables you to:
- Understand sample preparation for dSTORM imaging
- Prepare samples for dSTORM with optimal reagents
- Understand the basics of dSTORM imaging
- Acquire dSTORM data on the Nanoimager*
- Gain confidence before experimenting with your own samples
- Analyze dSTORM data on CODI
*Microscope systems with equivalent specifications and compatible with dSTORM imaging can be used to image samples prepared using the dSTORM Training Kit.
