Fluorescence microscopy is a very broadly used term covering numerous applications. It ranges from basic life science applications such as time-lapse cell viability assays — in which dead cells are counted as they start to fluoresce by intrusion of a fluorochrome that cannot enter intact living cells — to sophisticated techniques where only very few photons or single molecules are detected and localized by specific high-end hardware and software. It can be quite complex to design an optical imaging system that perfectly fits a specific application. And at the same time, instrument manufacturers are facing pressure to keep the costs down in the medical and life sciences markets.
