An Introduction to Fluorescence Imaging

Imaging microscopic biological specimens demands greater resolution than can typically be attained via conventional microscopy. Consider a cell, which is predominantly composed of water and is subsequently transparent. Visible light-based microscopy will fail to provide much detail about cellular structures, as most light on the range of 400–700 nanometers (nm) will simply transmit through. This … Continue reading
