GATTAquant - DNA nanotechnology for super-resolution microscopy

The GATTAquant GmbH, founded in Braunschweig in September 2014, is a spin-off company of the Technical University of Braunschweig in the field of super-resolution imaging. The company focuses on probes for fast, easy and precise quantification of super-resolution systems.

These probes allow you to check the resolution of your microscope with a precision of a few nanometers. This level of precision is reached by using special nanostructures (so called DNA origami structures) as breadboards for placing single dye molecules in an exactly defined pattern. GATTAquant offers the first commercial application using DNA origami technology.

Our innovative nanorulers allow a fast, easy and precise determination of resolution values in any common super-resolution system (STED, SIM, GSD, dSTORM, Blink microscopy, DNA-PAINT). On the one hand the instantaneous visible, significant result makes it easy for users to proof their microscope’s resolution and on the other hand provides an opportunity for microscope manufacturers to demonstrate the performance of their products in an eye-catching way.

To ensure an optimized gain as well as a maximal performance of the probe, we design our products individually according to your wishes, requests and intentions.
