Revolutionary microscope brings new focus to fight against disease

A new form of microscope developed in Scotland could revolutionise viewing cells and organisms, researchers have announced.

The three-dimensional images can be produced within seconds, rather than hours, which could speed up developments of new medicines, said scientists at the University of Strathclyde.

The Mesolens — the only such device in the world — can offer a detailed glimpse of organisms too big for traditional microscopes, as well as allowing imaging of cancerous tissues and the cortex of the brain.

The lens can produce resolution of more than 150 megapixels, equivalent to ten modern digital cameras combined — via redwolf.newsvine.com
