Weak Points: None


There are a number of great online educational microscopy resources, and in their company is the Carl Zeiss Microscopy Online Campus. This website provides a wealth of information on microscopy and its applications, perfect for the neophyte microscopist or seasoned scientist searching for a deeper theoretical understanding of the imaging that he/she may use on a regular basis in the lab. Content on the site is divided into nine topics, and these include basic microscopy, spinning disk microscopy, fluorescent proteins, and light sources, among others. In addition, there is an interactive tutorials page that includes animations to illuminate (yes, pun intended) specific concepts, and there is also a reference library page that directs readers to relevant primary literature across a range of microscopy topics.
