Video: Confocal and multiphoton microscopy
This video explains the process of using confocal and multiphoton microscopy to create images
Confocal and multiphoton microscopy are non-invasive fluorescent imaging techniques that use lasers of different wavelengths to excite the sample and produce the image. Samples can be detected simply from autofluorescence of the tissue or labelled with fluorochromes to highlight specific tissues.
Watch the video below, which explains the process of using confocal and multiphoton microscopy to create images.
