See flower cells in 3-D: No electron microscopy required

30 abril 2015

High-resolution imaging of plant cells is important in many plant studies, and the most commonly used method is scanning electron microscopy (SEM). But SEM can have limitations, including damage to material during sample preparation and high equipment costs. Researchers have developed an optical sectioning-3-D reconstruction method using a compound fluorescence light microscope. The new method is simpler and more cost-effective than SEM.
