Fluorescence microscopy


Fluorescence microscopy is a rapid expanding technique, both in the medical and biological sciences. The technique has made it possible to identify cells and cellular components with a high degree of specificity. The absorption and subsequent re-radiation of light by organic and inorganic specimens is typically the result of well-established physical phenomena described as being either fluorescence or phosphorescence. Certain antibodies and disease conditions or impurities in inorganic material can be studied with the fluorescence microscopy.
