Confocal microscopy

Testing and validation > Microscopy

Description

A confocal microscope records point-by-point scans of a sample to create two-dimensional images.

Three-dimensional images can be created by combining the images of multiple planes, taken by repeating the scanning technique but varying the z-axis.
