Overview

Video microscopy is used extensively in many life and biomedical science disciplines today, and is a useful tool for both cell biologists and students. This book presents how to track the dynamic changes that take place in the structure of living cells and in reconstituted preparations using video and digital imaging microscopy. Basic information, principles, and applications are also covered, as well as more specialized video microscopy techniques.

Key Features
• Chapters cover the commonly used video technologies in biological research
• Nontechnical presentation of principles
• Emphasis on the practical aspects of instrument use
• Covers pitfalls in instrument uses that can lead to artifacts
• Authors are leaders in the design and application of video methods to biological microscopy
• Presentation of material tailored for the established researcher that has little experience with video methods
• Examples are extensively illustrated with photographs
