TIRF (Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence) microscopy can image an optical section with a thickness in the range of 20 – 200 nm, as compared to 800 nm with a confocal. With TIRF, only the sample surface at the immediate proximity of the slide is observed. The instrument’s high axial resolution makes it a device of choice for membrane observations or cytoskeleton studies. This type of microscopy is performed on living samples, or on fixed samples in “PBS”, but it will not work on samples fixed and mounted between a slide and cover slip.
