Absorption of energy as light by some molecules and emission of energy as fluorescence can occur only at certain wavelengths, which are characteristic for a given molecule (fluorophore). Fluorescence microscopes are equipped to observe the fluorescence of one or more specific fluorophores to localize specific molecules and analyzed cellular structures. This unit discusses the optics and other components of the fluorescence microscope, their functions and adjustments, and the digital darkroom.
