AIMS NanoSIMS (secondary ion mass spectrometry) is a powerful technique for mapping the elemental composition of a variety of small-scale samples (e.g. in Material Research, Cosmochemistry and Geology). However, its analytical features are making it also valuable to address biological questions. We demonstrate the ability of the NanoSIMS 50 to map elements at subcellular lateral resolution (approx. 50 nm) within cyanobacteria (Anabaena sp. and Cylindrospermum alatosporum) and its feasibility to… CONTINUE READING
