​​​​​Light microscope is a fundamental tool in science. In biological research, fluorescent labeling of samples, when combined with light microscopy, allows visualization of specific elements of interest; proteins, lipids, nucleic acids, etc. The ability of widefield fluorescent microscope to resolve these elements is limited because of out of focus light that the objective lens unnecessarily captures.  In the context of optical systems, confocal means that all visualized objects share the same foci or focus.​
