This section expands the macro-imaging technologies to the microscopic scale. Although, most of the protocols related to this sub-section are invasive, the similarities with the Macro-imaging section in term of optimising acquisition or processing the resulting images justify its inclusion in this section “imaging technologies”. This section is intended for protocols relating to:
- Optical and Fluorescence microscopy
- Laser confocal scanning microscopy for semi-quantitative analysis
- Fourier transform infrared micro-spectroscopy for chemical composition and spatial distribution of metabolites in plant tissues
- Preparing samples for micro-imaging
- Image analysis
For more protocols and related content, see Anatomy and Microscopy.
