Optical and fluorescence microscopy

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 fluorescence microscopy can provide instant results for cell counting and in vitro viability studies. It is also often used to find the site of interest for more detailed analysis by electron microscopy.
