Zeiss uses GATTAquant nanoruler for their new Airyscan

Confocal Imaging with improved Signal-to-Noise Ratio and Superresolution

With Airyscan, ZEISS introduced a new detector concept for confocal laser scanning microscopy (LSM). While traditional LSM designs use a combination of pinhole and single point detector, Airyscan is a 32 channel area detector and collects a pinhole-plane image at every scan position. Each detector element functions as a single, very small pinhole. Knowing the beam path and the spatial distribution of each of the 32 detectors enables very light efficient imaging with improved resolution and signal-to-noise. This paper explains how the detection concept is implemented in the ZEISS LSM 8 family.
