Light Microscopy

The detection of subtle changes in histological sections requires the highest quality of sections and experience of the observer.

Light microscopy equipment and the related embedding methods are prime factors of STZ OcuTox’s success. They build the basis for meaningful studies of our extremely experienced analysts.

With STZ OcuTox’s ability to also study samples with the electron microscope, different qualities specific for each study may be assessed. (Correlative Microscopy)

Methods

  • Correlative microscopy (Light microscope in combination with electron microscope). Example:

o    Gene for protein is introduced and marked

o    Study by light microscope: observation in living cells or even animals

o    Study in EM: Is the gene found in mitochondria?

  • Autoradiography
  • Laser Scanning Microscopy
  • Immunofluorescence
  • Histochemistry
  • Ophthalmic Specimen Slide Preparation along with the cornea and optic nerve
