(optics)
A variation of the compound laboratory light microscope which is arranged to admit ultraviolet, violet, and sometimes blue radiations to a specimen, which then fluoresces.

It is intended for single and extremely long-term acquisition of a large amount of image data from live and fixed samples using transmission and epifluorescence microscopy.
While most previous studies used epifluorescence microscopy to observe spindles two-dimensionally, we employed 3D observation using confocal fluorescence microscopy in order to determine the size and shape of spindles more accurately.
The investigators used atomic force microscopy and epifluorescence microscopy to assess the spatial distribution of bacteria as they dried from droplets.
In standard epifluorescence microscopy, used in most laboratories for immunofluorescence of renal and skin biopsies, or fluorescence in situ hybridization of individual chromosome probes, no mechanism exists to restrict out-of-focus light from being imaged.
6] oocysts/g feces was determined by using epifluorescence microscopy at 400x magnification.
The direct method used epifluorescence microscopy, with samples taken directly from the treated and untreated tanks, filtered and immediately counted under the microscope and expressed as colony forming units per mL (CFU/mL).
Whole brain was dissected and first examined directly without fixation using epifluorescence microscopy (Olympus, Hamburg, Germany) to determine if GFP was being expressed.
Direct acridine ornge counts using epifluorescence microscopy also showed a reduction in the number of cells on anodized alloy.
They borrowed an imaging technique called epifluorescence microscopy from research on animal cells.
The nuclear status of non- fertilized oocytes was evaluated by epifluorescence microscopy and the maturational stage was determined (1).
In situ denitrification gas samples were obtained using the acetylene block method; the DEA method determines the potential denitrifying capacity of samples under non-limiting conditions for denitrifying bacterial metabolism; bacterial biomass was determined using epifluorescence microscopy coupled with computer assisted image analysis; and microbial community diversity was analyzed using the terminal restriction length polymorphism (T-RFLP) analysis.
Microbiological techniques such as epifluorescence microscopy and image analysis are also taking their place.
