This is a conventional fluorescence image of microtubules in an intact alveolar epithelial cell, from the tiny, thin-walled, capillary-rich sac in the lungs where the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide takes place. Scientists in Pacific Northwest National Laboratory's Chemical Imaging Initiative are looking to get more information from these types of images. Specifically, they achieved 3D super-resolution fluorescence images (see other images) of sub-cellular structures in the intact cell with 20-nm resolution using Stochastic Optical Reconstruction Microscopy (STORM)>
