Overview

Video Microscopy instructs researchers in the principles and practice of video microscopy for a wide variety of research applications. Because video microscopy involves an integrated package of sophisticated instruments that must be coordinately optimized, the knowledgeable use of these instruments is essential to the acquisition and display of specimen information. Articles by leaders in the design and application of video methods for biological microscopy cover the full range of commonly used video technologies. The basics of each component or technology are presented in a nontechnical fashion and emphasize practical information that allows the reader to avoid common mistakes that lead to artifacts.
This volume is an essential guide for students and scientists in cell biology, developmental biology, neuroscience, and other areas of biological and biomedical research. This book is also a useful supplement for light microscopy courses as well as a resource for research directors and the technical staff of imaging facilities.
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

Audience: Graduate students, technicians, postdoctoral, and experienced researchers in fields of cell, developmental, and molecular biology.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The contributors are experts in the field... The number and quality of illustrations, of all types, are excellent. This is to be expected of a book in this series... This is an excellent guide for scientists who wish to set up a modern video microscopy facility in their laboratory. Individuals who plan to actually have such a facility will want to own a copy of the book. It will also be a valuable resource for a life science library."
—Alvin Telser, PhD, Northwestern University Medical School, for DOODY'S PUBLISHING REVIEWS
"...there is much useful information in this volume that is not readily found in the journal literature, such as detailed reviews of perfusion chambers, discussions of microscope alignment, how to mate video cameras to microscopes, and how to optimize camera and monitor adjustments. In fact, this is exactly the type of "hands on" extremely useful information that is provided in a good course. In short, this volume edited by Sluder and Wolf provides very useful information for the practicing video microscopist."
—Steven L. Goodman, University of Connecticut Health Center, in JOURNAL OF SCANNING MICROSCOPIES
