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.
