Core Connection: Light Microscopy and Digital Imaging

May 23, 2018 | Katie Neith

Microscopes have been the backbone of many scientific experiments since at least the 1600s, but as technology rapidly progresses, these instruments become more complex and harder to use. Nonetheless, microscopes, paired with advanced digital imaging techniques, remain critical tools for biomedical research, disease diagnostics and in tracking the body’s response to treatment therapies. They are also necessary for producing quality images for journal submissions and grant proposals.
