In this wide-ranging review, Olympus microscopy experts draw on their extensive knowledge and many years of experience to provide readers with a highly useful and rare overview of the combined fields of microscopy and imaging. By discussing both these fields together, this review aims to help clarify and summarise the key points of note in this story. Encompassing the creation of highly detailed specimen views through to final image capture and processing, the story will also be backed up by useful insights, examples, as well as handy hints and tips along the way.

To make it easy to dip in and dip out of this comprehensive overview, the review is clearly structured into several chapters. These take the reader from explanations of the physics of light, colour and resolution, through details of contrast and fluorescence techniques, to finish up with discussion on 3D imaging. Highlighting and summarising key points made within this review are a series of information boxes. These also aim to provide useful insight on techniques, as well as expert advice on microscope set up.
