Paper Abstract

Aspects of the inverted versus top view configuration for confocal microscopy are examined with the inverted-type clearly offering advantages for high-resolution imaging of certain types of biological specimen. The role and possibilities of the use of pinholes of variable size in confocal microscopy is discussed and data are presented for combinations of objectives and various sizes of pinholes.
