Scope note
Fluorescence microscopy technique used for specific identification of molecules. It uses the specificity of antibodies to their antigen to target fluorescent dyes to specific targets within a cell, and therefore allows visualization of the distribution of the target molecule through the sample. In conservation science, the technique has been used for the highly sensitive and specific identification of proteins in artistic and archaeological materials.
