Imagine examining your samples with a fluorescence microscope at twice the optical resolution of existing confocal or deconvolution microscopes.  What would you see that you might not have appreciated before?

Many researchers would love to image deeper into fluorescently labeled, sectioned tissue without the need to use two-photon microscopy.  Deep imaging suffers from the effects of a number of optically-related artifacts.  Several recent techniques have been proposed to alter the optical properties of the sample (CLARITY, SCALE, etc) and greatly improve the ability to image deeper.  Shane Andrews (Olympus America) will review these techniques, sharing their pluses and minuses, as well as tips (including new Olympus specialty objective lenses) for success.
