Cell Biological Applications of Confocal Microscopy instructs researchers on methods of preparing biological material for confocal microscopy. Individual chapters describe the technical problems of imaging structures in thick specimens and useful techniques such as multi-color dye visualization. The book provides specific examples of applications of confocal microscopy to cell biological problems. This volume is an essential guide for students and scientists in cell biology, neuroscience, and many other areas of biological and biomedical research, as well as research directors and technical staff of microscopy and imaging facilities.

Key Features
* Describes proper specimen preparation for obtaining high-quality data and images
* Covers pitfalls in imaging different specimens and in employing different dyes
* Contains detailed protocols accessible to new users
* Chapters are self-contained units, but describe strategies that can be combined to develop new protocols
* Techniques are illustrated with full-color plates

Audience: New and experienced researchers, graduate students, and technicians in cell and developmental biology, anatomy, pathology, neuroscience, biophysics, optical science. Also large audience in other biological areas for which microscopy is an important research tool, such as directors and technical staff of microscopy and imaging facilities.
