Light Microscopy is one of the most valuable and versatile tools in biomedical research. Imaging “infiltrated” all kinds of natural science categories, serving cell and developmental biologists, pathobiologists, physicists, material scientists, chemicals, pharmaceutical specialists and clinicians, thereby acting as THE “translational” method. In recent years we observed fast and revolutionary development of new biooptical technologies, as well as a boom in fluorophore engineering towards advanced functionalities.
