Abstract

[Introduction]:Many microbiologists will be familiar with transmission fluorescence microscopy as well the improved epifluorescence microscopy. However, microbiologists are generally less familiar with confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM), despite its use since the early 1980s in cell biology and related fields. Furthermore, the new technique of multi-photon laser scanning microscopy (MPLSM) is not yet widely appreciated. This article briefly outlines some principles and applications of these two relatively recent microscopic techniques. With their inherent advantages, CLSM and MPLSM could be widely applied to enhance microbiological studies.
