Confocal microscope is a special form of standard fluorescence microscope that uses particular optical components to generate high-resolution images of material stained with fluorescent probes. Confocal microscopy is different from the conventional wide field fluorescence microscopy, in which the optical path is designed to place in front of the image detector (photomultiplier tube or camera), and an aperture (opening) at a point where the image is focused in conjunction with the focal plane of the image.
