|Intravital Imaging:||Intravital imaging is the observation of biological processes in living animals/tissue. It introduces new challenges such as achieving higher penetration depths, and dealing with sample mobility. Appreciating that how cells respond in tissue culture has often been shown to be largely different from their response in their true environment makes intravital imaging a crucial step in understanding biological systems.|
|Spinning Disk Confocal:||Spinning disk uses the confocal pinhole principle to optically section fluorescently labelled samples by rejecting out of focus light, preventing it from reaching the detector. It is faster than conventional confocal imaging by scanning several points simultaneously, making it well suited for capturing highly dynamic processes in thick specimens.
