Fluorescence microscopy is one of today's most important laboratory techniques and supports highly valued applications in fundamental biological research, live cell imaging and 3D structure, functional localisation, signalling and many other areas. Important developments have been made that have greatly extended the capabilities of this technique, and these include advances in instrumentation, optics, fluorescence labelling, computing and image processing. These developments have established the unique capabilities of fluorescence microscopy, and these include real-time molecular dynamics, functional live cell imaging and single-molecule detection. Super-resolution capabilities have also been developed, enabling this technique to be used at effective magnifications beyond the optical diffraction limit.

 

Fluorescence Microscopy 2015 presents the findings of a new global study of fluorescence microscopy which profiled the laboratory use of this technique by research scientists and clinicians. This study, which evaluated end-users' current practices and three-year plans, investigated market growth; the competitive positions of global instrumentation suppliers; fluorescence microscopy techniques, modes and types; live cell studies and associated experimental methods; fixed cell (non-living) studies and experimental methods; current and anticipated future use of super-resolution fluorescence microscopy; super-resolution fluorescence microscopy techniques and applications; end-users' top fluorescent dyes; advantages and disadvantages of fluorescence microscopy; costs, numbers of samples, use of specialist software; and applications, disease areas, fields, sectors and other areas. This involved the participation of 273 experienced end-users across 41 countries and profiled current practices, developments, trends and future plans over the next three years, as well as growth and opportunities across key sectors of these markets. Today, fluorescence microscopy is seeing rapid growth and development across important market sectors, and these developments are profiled in this report.
