    Illumination in microscopy often overlooked

    Article obtained from BioPhotonics RSS Feed.

    As scientists engage in the development and manufacture of high-performance lighting, we find it frustrating to encounter a lack of appreciation for the illumination source in the successful application of light microscopy. Like that other pervasive illumination source, the sun, microscope light sources are commonly taken for granted. It often seems they only draw attention when they are absent. This is unfortunate, as it not only leaves many users unaware of the benefits of modern solid-state illumination technologies, but it leaves them reliant on archaic incandescent bulbs and mercury arc lamps.
