New book chapter detailing EExM in Methods in Cell Biology

Our new book chapter has been published, detailing the enhanced expansion microscopy technique (EExM). The protocol offers a route to visualising cellular ultrastructures at a resolution of 15 nm in-plane (and ~ 35 nm axially) with a hydrogel-based molecular-scale imprint of the fluorescence pattern.

We detail how we used EExM to explore structural and biochemical remodelling in cardiomyocytes. The chapter includes a step-by-step protocol, reagent list and troubleshooting tips.
