An introduction to microscopy and its different types

Research of microscopy image handling and analysis



What do you mean by Microscopy?

Microscopy is a technical field to use the microscopes for viewing objects and samples which cannot be seen with unaided eyes (objects which are not within normal eye resolution range). It is also a scientific discipline that involves the magnifying objects invisible for naked eyes. Main goal of this branch of sciences is rendering these types of objects visible for the study, allowing the researchers to learn lot more about them and how they will be working. Various types of microscopy are available with many innumerable applications. In particular Biology is heavily relied on the microscopy for gathering information’s and these scientific tools can be used for daily purposes everywhere all over world from the scientific labs of high schools to disease control center.  Click here for more details.

Three types of popular branches of microscopy:

  • Electron
  • Optical
  • Scanning probe microscopy.

Electron and the optical microscopy will involve reflection, diffraction, or the electron beam, electromagnetic radiation refraction interacting with scattered radiation subsequent collection or other signals and the specimen in order for creating images. This type of process will be carried out by the sample wide-field irradiation (for the example like transmission electron microscopy and the standard light microscopy) or by the fine beam scanning over sample (for examples like scanning electron microscopy and the confocal laser scanning microscopy). Scanning probe microscopy actually involves interaction of the scanning probe with object of interest surfaces. Revolutionized microscopy biology development remained as an important method in physical sciences and life.

Image analysis research of microscopy

Microscopic roots which lied in 1600s, when the engineers and scientists have started first for developing the lenses that are capable of significant magnification by allowing the people to see all the things that have been invisible before. Today the systems of cellular microscopy generate full data volumes and are digital fully. Summarizing useful information image contents will be very challenging for doing manually, prior to both of the variable typical microscopy quality of data and volume. Thus growth of interest from working biological community with the microscopy experts to robust the tools for automating tracking and image analysis microscopy sequences for instant measuring key spatial and the temporal parameters which are associated with the statistics of cell population and mitosis of highly throughput screens, for developing an understanding better for the biological processes, and to offer target discovery and the decision making of clinical tools.
