Fluorescence Microscopy

Fluorescence microscopy is a type of light microscopy in which light for image formation is generated indirectly from the fluorescence of specialized molecules (known as fluorophores or dyes) that are embedded in the specimen. Unlike transmitted light microscopy, there is no background from light passing directly from the illumination source to the detector. For biologist, this means that much smaller objects in smaller numbers can be detected and observed. However, in order to make those observations, light sources capable of generating much higher intensity outputs than those used for transmitted light microscopy are required.
