Fluorochromes are dyes that absorb light and are excited by it to emit light at a different wavelength. Fluorochromes are used in flow cytometry to identify different types of cells. Fluorochromes are also used in fluorescence microscopy, immunology, and molecular biology.

Fluorochromes differ in their emission spectra from their excitation spectra. The excitation spectrum shows the peak wavelength absorbed by a fluorochrome. The emission spectrum shows the peak wavelength emitted by a fluorochrome. This is why you can get excited and excited by a fluorochrome’s excitation spectrum.

Fluorophores are molecules that absorb light and re-emit light at a different wavelength. The emission spectrum is the amount of light emitted at different wavelengths while the excitation spectrum is the amount of light absorbed at different wavelengths.

 One of the best ways to figure out what you’re good at is to look at what you’ve already done in your life, figure out what kinds of things you’ve already been successful at and what you enjoyed doing.

Fluorescence is the emission of light by a substance that has absorbed light or other electromagnetic radiation. When a fluorochrome emits light, the emitted light is not at the same wavelength as the absorbed light. The emitted light has a longer wavelength than the absorbed light, whereas the opposite is true for fluorescence.
