WG 5 have principally been testing beads for PSF measurements, using different formats (polystyrene, DNA origami, nanodots, printed patterns). We have identified an optimal size range for confocal and widefield imaging, and a re still testing the ease of use, functionality and robustness of several of these formats. We have begun a draft methodology which we propose to publish for Confocal PSF measurement using beads before developing the method further for other modalities, as well as investigating alternative methods, such as mirrors for axial resolution tests.
