Fundamentals of Fluorescence Imaging

by Guy Cox

"Fundamentals of Fluorescence Imaging is one of those must-need textbooks for students in biomedical sciences, and I will definitely use it as such. In easy-to-read language understandable to the non-physicists or non-microscopists but in a complete way, it gives an overview of the most used fluorescence microscopy techniques. What is great about this book is also that it combines the technological part with very practical topics: sample preparation (chapter 5) and labeling of specific organelles (chapter 6–8). The book is fun to read and very instructive. I will implement it in my teaching program for sure."

Fluorescence imaging, at macro, micro and sub-micro scales, has revolutionized biological science in the past 30 years.  Immuno-labelling has provided precise targeting of molecules in fixed tissue, while fluorescent proteins have enabled localization in living tissues.  Fluorescent indicators enable imaging of dynamic changes in cell metabolism.

This book covers, for the first time, imaging at all scales from macro to sub-micro (super-resolution). 

Authors include Robert Clegg, legendary teacher and researcher (who sadly died during the editorial process), Jim Pawley, editor of several editions of the Confocal Handbook, the famous and now dispersed New Zealand team of Mark Cannell, Christian Soeller and David Baddeley, Robert Hoffman, pioneer of whole-animal imaging in cancer  research, Andreas Schoenle and Christian Eggeling on STED nanoscopy, and many more famous participants  in this field.  All the contributors are at the cutting edge of their field.
