Embryonic Stem Cell Differentiation into Nervous System Cell
Capturing clear images without fluorescence blurring
Nerve cells are susceptible to fluorescence blurring during fluorescence observation due to structural complexity, and therefore are observed mainly with laser confocal microscopes.
Image capturing by sectioning allows for observation without blurring of green neuropeptides as shown in the image on the left.

What is an ES cell?
ES cells (embryonic stem cell) are created from the inner cell mass of a fertilized egg at early stages. With pluripotency, cells can be proliferated almost without limit, so applications for such fields as regenerative medicine are expected.
