Nothing beats being able to directly see what you’re doing! Optical and fluorescence microscopy is perfect for wide-field characterisation and initial inspections.
Optical and confocal fluorescence microscopy can provide instant results for cell-based assays and in vitro viability studies. It is also often used to find the site of interest for more detailed analysis by electron microscopy.
Confocal fluorescence microscopy
Fluorescence imaging gives selective information about different structures in your sample. Confocal microscopy offers improved resolution and image definition by eliminating out of focus light.
