Conducting Multiple Imaging Modes with One Fluorescence Microscope Seongjin Park1, Jiacheng Zhang2, Matthew A. Reyer2, Joanna Zareba1,3, Andrew A. Troy4, Jingyi Fei1,2 1Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Chicago, 2The Institute for Biophysical Dynamics, University of Chicago, 3Faculty of Chemistry, Wrocław University of Science and Technology, 4Nikon Instruments Inc. Here we present a practical guide of building an integrated microscopy system, which merges conventional epi-fluorescent imaging, single-molecule detection-based super-resolution imaging, and multi-color single-molecule detection, including single-molecule fluorescence resonance energy transfer imaging, into one set-up in a cost-efficient way.
