Confocal microscopy
After locating the area of interest on each slide using regular fluorescence and brightfield microscopy we used the confocal imaging software. To optimize the image we adjusted the focus, offset, voltage, and gain. To generate the images below we used a Kalman filter to minimize background noise and a longer exposure time to obtain high quality images. We additionally took Z stacks of the slides in order to view a 3D perspective of the tissue.
