Confocal microscopy, also known as confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM), has been applied across life sciences for decades. From ophthalmology to neuroscience, confocal microscopy supports life-saving diagnostics, treatments and research.
Today, biomedical applications for confocal microscopy increasingly rely on acousto-optical tunable filters (AOTFs). There are good reasons for this. The precise control, agility and speed created by AOTF technology enhances the versatility of confocal microscopy, which, in turn, enables further scientific innovation. As the demand for greater image clarity and flexibility increases, AOTF solutions are likely to become more complex, requiring particular integrated expertise and capabilities.
