Q: What is a fluorescence microscope?
A: Fluorescence microscopes are optical devices that rely on fluorescence and phosphorescence instead of light reflection and absorption in order to examine organic specimins. These microscopes use fluorescence in order to generate detailed images. Most common components of these microscopes include a light source such as high-power LED, arc or mercury-vapor lamps, a beamsplitter, as well as an excitation and emission filter.
Q: Who uses fluorescence microscopes?
A: Fluorescence microscopes are highly advancemicroscope models that are designed for laboratory professionals. Whilst most common in a host of medical related fields including haematology, microbiology and urology; these devices are also relied upon in veterinary practices for analysing mammal cells. These microscopes are often preferred for water analysis in sewage treatment plants as the fluorescent light filters can be used to reveal bacteria and parasites more easily.
