Fluorescence imaging is a tool often used to visualize cells and subcellular structures. Since the development of the first fluorescent dye in 1871, its usefulness to life science applications has been demonstrated as biomolecular labels, cellular stains, ionic indicators, and more. Many modern biological and biomedical research applications rely in part on fluorescence imaging to understand cellular structures and events.
