Estimating how hot is an illuminated nanoparticle

2020-09-18T11:48:49+00:00September 18th, 2020|

In our recent paper in ACS Nano by Mariano Barella et al., we present a nanothermometry technique based on anti-Stokes photoluminescence (PL) emission. Acquiring a hyperspectral confocal image we can obtain the photothermal coefficient of single nanoparticles (NPs) and estimate their temperature increase when they are being irradiated. Plasmonic NPs are particularly efficient converters of [...]

New members joined the group. Unfortunately, they start activities in the middle of COVID-19 isolation. We work from home while we look forward to going back to the lab... Welcome Romina, Gonzalo, Florencia and Fernando! Dr. Romina Landa and Ph.D. candidate Gonzalo Escalante will be working on applying ultra-resolution techniques such [...]

Detecting molecular organization in sparse single molecule localization images

2020-06-12T19:40:54+00:00March 25th, 2020|

In our recent work by Alan Szalai et al, we present a method to detect underlying molecular organization invisible to the eye in low-density single-molecule localization microscopy (SMLM) images. SMLM is fantastic to obtain super-resolved fluorescence images. However, it is often the case that the density of localizations is too low to obtain a [...]

New equipment for the lab!

2020-06-12T19:27:42+00:00March 5th, 2020|

We received a shipment with various instruments and equipment coming from Göttingen, as a generous donation of the Max-Planck Society organized by Dr. Thomas Jovin. All the team was very happy and helped with the unloading and unpacking... Thank you, Tom, for your friendship and constant [...]

Revealling the NEDDylome

2020-06-12T20:15:44+00:00February 28th, 2020|

We contributed with super-resolution fluorescence imaging to this wonderful work led by our collaborator Dr. Damián Refojo (IBIOBA-CONICET, Max-Partner Institute), and his colleagues from Genentech Dr. Donald S. Kirkpatrick and Dr. Morgan Sheng Neddylation is the post-translational protein modification most closely related to ubiquitination. Whereas the ubiquitin-like protein NEDD8 is well studied for [...]

Quantitative expansion fluorescence microscopy

2020-06-12T20:04:47+00:00February 20th, 2020|

In our recent paper by in collaboration with the group of Dr. Nicolás Unsain (INIMEC, Córdoba), we present a protocol to perform expansion fluorescence microscopy quantitatively. We validate the protocol comparing the expansion microscopy images to images obtain with STED, of the membrane-associated periodic skeleton of neurons. Gaby F. Martínez [...]
