From the reviews:

"Imaging Cellular and Molecular Biological Functions presents essays by experts in the field for scientists and students who are interested in all aspects of imaging, including development and applications." (Spencer L. Shorte and Friedrich Frischknecht, Biophotonics International, April, 2008)

"This 450-page, color-illustrated book summarizes the latest technology. It is clearly structured in three sections. … We can recommend this book to young researchers and imaging specialists … thanks not only to the numerous illustrations that help clarify the text, but also to the extensive collection of sources relating to each chapter." (Microscopy and Imaging, November, 2008)
