Confocal Microscopy – The Re-scan Confocal Microscope (RCM)

This blog explores the methodology behind re-scan con-focal microscopy, taught by DR. Erik Manders, the creater of RCM. Learn about it applications, its history, its theory, its complications and how it compare to competitors in similar fields.
