Digital imaging basics for optical microscopy
08 Dec 2020

In this SelectScience webinar, we present the basics of microscopy imaging with a digital camera to educate users on how to improve both their image and data quality.

Imaging expert Takeo Ogama, Olympus Corporation of the Americas, will cover the link between the biology and observed digital image data, the factor effects on signal intensity, causes of background noise and how to minimize them, trade-off factors that make an impact on image and data quality, and best practices for image acquisition. These are the basics for widefield fluorescence imaging but could be leveraged for any biological experiment that uses a microscope and digital image acquisition.

Key learning objectives

  • Basics of microscopy digital image acquisition
  • Understanding the link between biology and digital image data
  • How to achieve optimal signal-to-noise ratio while maximizing the signal, minimizing the background, and keeping the sample healthy
  • Best practices for fluorescence image acquisition

Who should attend?

  • Biologists who use an optical microscope with a camera for fluorescence imaging
