Fluorescence microscope

fluorescence microscope
A fluorescence microscope is an equal to common light microscopes instrument with the exception that it illuminates specimen with the light of a special wavelength causing the observed object to emit light with a different colour due to absorbtion by the fluorophores. Life sciences widely use fluorescence microscopes, mostly the type called "epifluorescence microscopes".  Fluorescence microscopes are very useful in all fields of biology, making it possible to study more thoroughly protein and other molecules.


Having a fluorescence microscope with a camera attached to it is a wonderful experience, you can view and record cells and see the properties of protein which is ofcourse not seen by the naked eye. This image is a specimen of a PtK2 cell of marsupial kidney.
