Digital imaging microscopy of living cells.

Author information

Dept of Biomedical Sciences, University of Padova, Italy.


Fluorescence microscopy has undergone a resurgence in interest following the discovery of green-fluorescent protein (GFP) and its increasing use in live-cell imaging. This article describes an enhanced form of epifluorescence microscopy, digital imaging microscopy, that can be used to produce high-resolution three-dimensional images of samples labelled with GFP, or other fluorochromes, using simple instrumentation and image-restoration software.
