In recent years, there has been an enormous increase in the publication of spatial and temporal measurements made on fluorescence microscopy digital images. Quantitative fluorescence microscopy is a powerful and important tool in biological research but is also an error-prone technique that requires careful attention to detail. In this chapter, we focus on general concepts that are critical to performing accurate and precise quantitative fluorescence microscopy measurements.
