Immunofluorescence microscopy is a widely used laboratory method which allows detection and visualization of specific antigens. The method employs the specificity of antibodies to deliver fluorophore to a specific target and then visualize it with a microscope. The power of the technique is that it requires relatively little manipulation and relatively few… CONTINUE READING
