fluorescence microscopy

German: Fluoreszenzmikroskopie
Japanese: 蛍光顕微鏡法

Optics. Microscopy of specimens stained with fluorescent dye or of naturally fluorescent materials, which emit light when exposed to ultraviolet or blue light. If the excitation light is from above the specimen, it is called epifluorescence microscopy. Fluorescent-labelled antibodies are widely used to detect particular antigens in biological specimens.
