Life Science
Fluorescence
Imaging
The human eye can only do so much when it comes to imaging. In many applications, especially life science, professionals need more detail, contrast, and light than our eyes can provide. In times like these, we turn to intrinsic fluorescence. This blog post outlines the applications and sources of intrinsic fluorescence and gives us a better understanding of why image enhancement is so important in the modern-day.
