What are Fluorescence Microscopes?
Unlike the common field microscopes, the fluorescence microscopes use light that excites the specimen to emit a light of longer wavelength. Fluorescence is an inherent property of substances which makes them to emit luminescent light when excited by some sort of radiation. This technology has made it possible to study in detail the activity of the microscopic organisms as digital images. This technique is named as Kohler illumination.
Fluorescence microscopes have found a great place in biological sciences. They are not only helpful in studying the cells but they even help in studying the structure of the DNA. There are various types of Fluorescence microscopes available in the market and the most common ones are the following:
Olympus IX70 Inverted
As has been already mentioned earlier, the second important modern microscopes are the inverted microscopes. They are a type of microscopes that have the light source and the condenser on the top. They are extremely useful in the study of living cells, tissues and the organisms that a placed at the bottom of a large container called the culture flask. This allows for a more natural vision that on the glass slide.
Inverted microscopes are configured for use in the following processes:
2.In Vitro Fertilization
4.High Resolution DIC
5.Video Enhanced Observations for various purposes
6.Advanced Fluorescence Techniques
They also allow the researchers and scientists to add advanced objectives for water immersion, ultraviolet excitation and phase contrast. The number of additional accessories that can be added to an inverted microscope the more would be its price. The greatest advantage of the inverted microscopes is that they allow the acceptance of a large and long lived culture of living organisms without any preparation.
