GATTAquant is the market leader for samples for fast, easy and precise quantification of super-resolution microscopy systems.
These samples allow you to check the resolution of your microscope with a precision of a few nanometers. This level of precision is reached by using special nanostructures (so called DNA origami structures) as breadboards for placing single dye molecules in an exactly defined pattern.
Our innovative nanorulers now allow a fast, easy and precise determination of resolution values in any common super-resolution system (STED, SIM, (d)STORM, DNA-PAINT) as well as in diffraction limited applications (GATTA-Confocal). On the one hand the instantaneous visible, significant result makes it easy for users to proof their microscope’s resolution and on the other hand provides an opportunity for microscope manufacturers to demonstrate the performance of their products in an eye-catching way.
Fluorescent beads for optical microscopy
Additionally, GATTAquant developed point-like light sources performing the highest brightness density in the world. These gattabeads
are ideal tools for exact and quantitative characterizations of super-resolution microscopes (especially STED systems) or as reference points for drift correction or particle tracking. Hereby gattabeads
are not only much brighter than conventional beads of comparable size but also provide a higher homogeneity and flexibility
