"Advanced imaging techniques are in the midst of a critical transition from something the average scientist only reads about to something that is becoming a part of his or her research. This book offers a set of excellent chapters that introduce the reader to the techniques in enough detail to have an impact on their research in a real way. I recommend it to those interested in beginning to apply these exciting new techniques".
-Prof. Scott Fraser, Biological Imaging Center, Beckman Institute, California Institute of Technology, Pasedena, California
"A thoughtfully selected blend of basic principles and methodological details renders this book an excellent source of information. Concise and well-written chapters lead the reader right to the point, which is of great use when considering applying a particular method".
-Stefan W. Hell, Priv.-Doz., Dr. rer. nat., Head, High Resolution Optical Microscopy Group, Max-Planck-Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, Gottingen, Germany
"This is a timely and useful book that includes the basics, while focusing on the newest and most promising advances in fluorescence microscopy and imaging - 2-photon, confocal, FRET, and FLIM technologies for biological and clinical applications. It is highly practical, with important technical details and sources of information, but it also develops the pertinent theory and principles. It's a must-buy for anyone engaged in fluorescence microscopy!"
-Prof. Alan F (Rick) Horwitz, Depatment of Cell Biology, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia
