Live-Cell Optical Microscopy with Limited Light Doses
The study of living organisms with light has been a challenge for several decades.
Modern methods of microscopy are appropriate tools for this purpose, but their
benefits should be harnessed while avoiding their harmful effects. This Spotlight
examines the early detection of diseases and cellular responses to pharmaceutical
agents with 3-D systems and non-phototoxic light doses. Techniques discussed
in this eBook include 3-D microscopy, super-resolution microscopy, membrane
imaging, long-exposure imaging, and spectral imaging.
