London, Mar 2 (Prensa Latina) British scientists announced this Wednesday that they created the world’s most powerful optical microscope.
That microscope is capable of examining objects of nanoscopic vision.
Researchers from the University of Manchester said that the optical microscope allows scientists to look at tiny details inside cells, bacteria and viruses.
According to Prof Lin Li, who led the project, this new instrument is particularly interesting to observe cells.
Prof Lin Li said that current technology is too slow, that a fluorescent optical microscope takes two days to prepare a sample, and the chances of success are between 10 and 20 percent.
