Breakthrough at Jackson Lab 

Scientists at the Jackson Lab in Bar Harbor say they’ve made a breakthrough in research.

For the first time, researchers are able to see a cell’s substructure up close through a microscope.

Reseachers are wing closely with researchers at the University of Maine and a lab in california to improve resoution on the new apparratus.

The new technique, which is referred to as bi-plane, uses advanced technology to provide unprecedented 3-D revolution.

The new technology is compatible with live cell imaging and tissue sections of up to several micrometers thick.
