About this Textbook

There has been a great upsurge in interest in light microscopy in recent years due to the advent of a number of significant advances in microscopy, one of the most important of which is confocal microscopy. Confocal microscopy has now become an important research tool, with a large number of new fluorescent dyes becoming available in the past few years, for probing your pet structure or molecule within fixed or living cell or tissue sampies. Many of the people interested in using confocal microscopy to further their research do not have a background in microscopy or even cell biology and so not only do they find considerable difficulty in obtaining satisfactory results with a confocal microscope, but they may be mislead by how data is being presented. This book is intended to teach you the basic concepts ofmicroscopy, fluorescence, digital imaging and the principles of confocal microscopy so that you may take full advantage ofthe excellent confocal microscopes now available. This book is also an excellent reference source for information related to confocal microscopy for both beginners and the more advanced users. For example, do you need to know the optimal pinhole size for a 63x 1. 4 NA lens? Do you need to know the fluorescence emission spectrum of Alexa 568? Access to the wealth of practical information in this book is made easier by using both the detailed index and the extensive glossary.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"My overall impression of this book is that it offers an excellent compilation of high-standard reviews on basic concepts of microscopy and the principles of confocal microscopy. … all of the illustrations and graphs contained in the book are well-designed and concise. In summary, this is an outstanding book. For beginners and advanced users of confocal microscopy, from young scientists to professionals, this is a worthwhile read. The text has enormous value for biologists … . I enjoyed reading this book … ." (Rafael Luján, Journal of Chemical Neuroanatomy, Vol. 30, 2005)
