From neuroscience to morphogenesis and photosynthesis, optomechanical modules allow researchers to utilize fluorescence microscopy in diverse and increasingly complex studies.

JOHN WINGERD, SISKIYOU CORP.

Despite the superior spatial resolution of complementary newer technologies such as atomic force microscopy (AFM), fluorescence microscopy remains a preeminent technology in the life sciences. Fluorescence detection offers a uniquely simple method of imaging with chemical specificity; for example, researchers can map the location and density of a specific protein or identify increased metabolic activity by imaging a chemical with a response that is modulated by local Ca2+ ion concentration. Moreover, the range of fluorescence labels has expanded beyond traditional dyes with an ever-growing...Read full article
