Special Offers Classic Titles on Sale. Recent advances in microscope technology, labeling techniques and gene and protein manipulation methods have led to breakthroughs in our understanding of biological processes. In order to take advantage of these techniques, biologists need to understand the fundamental techniques of microscopy. The methods found here, drawn from the popular laboratory standard manual Cells: A Laboratory Manual, provide a solid course in the basics of using the microscope in a biology laboratory.

Methods In addition, nuclei in the specimen were counterstained with Hoechst Images were recorded in grayscale with an Olympus FluoView FV coupled to a BX inverted microscope using Argon-ion nanometer line , violet diode nanometers , and green helium-neon nanometers lasers. During the processing stage, individual image channels were pseudocolored with RGB values corresponding to each of the fluorophore emission spectral profiles.
The vitality and physical properties of adherent cells grown on coverslips in Petri dishes can be determined using a combination of fluorescent stains. This protocol details a generalized procedure for staining a variety of cell types.
