Fluorescence

Insights into the structures and dynamics of life

Fluorescence microscopy is essential technique for studying biological processes. Fluorescence can be used to visualize specific subcellular structures in fixed cells, and reveal connections between dynamic processes in live cells and tissues. Without fluorescence labeling, few cellular process can be visualized since most biological samples are almost transparent. A broad range of advanced Live-cell Imaging Techniques can be employed by researchers to probe the complexities of cellular processes. Fluorescence imaging is central to many of these imaging techniques.

Sensitivity,quality and speed

To obtain excellent fluorescence images you need a highly sensitive camera delivering a high signal-to-noise ratio and a large dynamic range resulting in a crisp fluorescence signal. Live-cell imaging often requires a high acquisition speed to capture fast dynamic processes.
