Adaptive Color Illumination for Microscopes
Microscopes typically use a single color illumination source and the intensity of it can be varied depending on the application. They are used to observe various specimens which are usually stained to highlight the objects of interest. Automatic methods for identification of diseases from these specimens have been developed recently. The stains result in different colors and white illumination source may not offer the best contrast in all cases. Further, the staining process does not always result in the same color owing to the changes in the pH of the buffer used.
