A signed Confidential Disclosure Agreement may be required to receive copies of the patent applications. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Technology descriptions follow. SUMMARY: Microscopy Systems for Instant Internal Reflection Fluorescence/ Structured Illumination Description of Technology: Structured illumination microscopy (SIM) is a method that uses sharply patterned light and post-processing of images to enhance image resolution (in its linear form, doubling resolution). In traditional SIM, a series of images are acquired with a camera and computationally processed to improve resolution. This implementation of SIM has also been combined with total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF), but the implementation still requires raw images relative to normal TIRF microscopy, thereby slowing acquisition 9-fold relative to conventional, diffraction-limited imaging.
