GroonyTM Epifluorescence Module


  Fluorescence microscopy has become one of the most important and versatile tools in cell biology. Over the past decade thousands of new fluorescence probes have been developed for visualizing cellular structures and reactions including: DNA, RNA cytoskeleton, mitochondria, lysomes, endoplasmic reticulium, Golgi aparatus, specific proteins, lipids, redox status, cell-cell communication, and the list goes on and on. However, the high cost of fluorescence microscopes has inhibited many scientists and teachers from using this important tool?but not any more!
