3D reconstruction (scale bar: 5 µm) of part of a neuron of the neural network active in the processing of signals from a locust eye using serial blockface scanning electron microscopy (SBEM) and showing the distribution of the afferent synaptic connections (yellow).
[Cooperation with the Medical University of Graz]
Single enzyme imaging (arrows) on cellulose surfaces via AFM high-resolution imaging in liquid conditions (a) cross confirmed via material sensitive phase imaging (b). This method also allows dynamic real-time investigations in liquid environments revealing enzymatic activities with site-specific (amorphous / crystalline) information (c).
