Fluorescence Microscopy

fluorescence is one of the most commonly used physical phenomena in biological and analytical microscopy, mainly because of its high sensitivity and high specificity. fluorescence is a form of luminescence. fluorescence microscopy even allows users to determine the distribution of a single molecule species, its amount and its localization inside a cell. colocalization and interaction studies can be performed, and ion concentrations as well as intra- and intercellular processes like endocytosis and exocytosis can be observed. with the help of super-resolution fluorescence microscopy, it is even possible to image sub-resolution structures.

Fluorescence Light Microscopes

fluorescence microscopes used in research applications are based on a set of optical filters:

  • an excitation filter
  • a dichroic beam splitter and
  • an emission filter

the filters are often plugged in together in a filter cube (compound microscopes) or in a flat holder (mainly stereo microscopes).

Whereas the excitation filter selects the wavelengths to excite a particular dye within the specimen, the emission filter serves as a kind of quality control by letting only the wavelengths of interest emitted by the fluorophore pass through. The dichroic mirror's purpose is to reflect light in the excitation band and transmit light in the emission band,  enabling the classic epifluorescence incident light illumination.

Fluorescence Stereo Microscopes

Leica Microsystems’ fluorescence stereo microscopes use the TripleBeam technology, a separate (third) beam path for fluorescence illumination of the sample without a dichroic mirror.

therefore one excitation filter for the illumination beam path and two emission filters, one for each observation beam path, are needed.

Cameras for fluorescence microscopy

To acquire fluorescence images, it is necessary to use the appropriate CCD or sCMOS fluorescence camera千亿体育官网. Leica Microsystems offers dedicated fluorescence cameras for all application needs. Each camera provides the perfect match of sensitivity and image quality to ensure superb results.

Software for fluorescence microscopy

Straightforward setup and control of experiments is becoming more and more important In fluorescence microscopy. The dedicated Leica Application Suite (LAS) X software platform facilitates the setup of even complex experiments. LAS X guides you from the setup to the analysis of the imaging data. From easy multi-channel experiments to complex 3D analysis, LAS千亿体育官网 X is the perfect software platform.

About Fluorescence Microscopy

千亿体育官网fluorescence microscopy has become the most important physical phenomenon in modern biology and medicine.

千亿体育官网after a slow start, the possibility of specific fluorescence staining boosted this application in the early 30's of the last century. around 1950 a second stage was ignited with the invention of immunofluorescent staining.

千亿体育官网functional imaging, most prominently by ca++ probes, delivered the method from the restraint to stick to morphological and structural imaging. the possibility to create living material with targeted expressible fluorescent proteins revolutionized fluorescence microscopy in an unexpected and extensive third stage.

currently, new methods that use specific fluorescent protein-features, are popping up weekly. and last but not least: all modes of super-resolution imaging are based on fluorescence.
