Airyscanning: A Novel Approach to Confocal Imaging
21 Nov 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.
