Airyscanning: A Novel Approach to Confocal Imaging
7 Oct 2014
Confocal laser scanning microscopy is the recognized standard for 3D fluorescence microscopy. This application note describes how Airyscanning releases the full potential of a confocal microscope, achieving resolutions comparable to an extremely small pinhole but with a much better signal-to-noise ratio. It combines excellent optical sectioning performance with flexible scanning strategies for imaging and photomanipulation, making it the method of choice for a vast range of applications.
