While lasers are necessary for some techniques, epifluorescence excitation is possible using broadband sources such as arc lamps or light-emitting diodes. Facebook icon An icon representing the Facebook social media site. To image these fast-moving emitters, Xie et al. The simplest wide-field method is epifluorescence, in which an expanded excitation beam is focused at the back focal plane of the objective, producing a collimated illumination beam at the sample.

Single-Molecule Spectroscopy and Imaging of Biomolecules in Living Cells
Molecules in Membranes Fast CCD cameras have made it possible to image in widefield and track in real time single molecules moving in plasma membranes. Perspective While ensemble biochemistry and imaging experiments will always be fundamental to cell biology, SMS has proven itself over the last decade as an invaluable tool for probing heterogeneous populations, dynamics, stoichiometry, trafficking, and structure inside living cells. Unfortunately, QDs and nanoparticles are usually endocytosed and remain trapped in endosomes instead of entering the cytosol, so they have faced hurdles in targeting in live cells. Because actin provides the cytoskeletal structure, these results seemed to contradict the picket fence model.
