Confocal microscopy was developed and patented by Marvin Minsky in 1955. It was primarily used in physical and medical sciences until the 1990s when it was first applied for the study of biofilms (Lawrence et al. 1991). CSLM uses optical imaging to create a Imaging Biofilms in Tissue Specimens 41 virtual slice or plane, many micrometers deep, within a sample, without the disturbing light emissions from slices out of the focal plane (Nwaneshiudu et al. 2012). The specimen is moved in the z direction and the stack of images collected is then combined using computer software.
