Spectral imaging and multispectral imaging are necessary for the detection of wideband fluorescence emissions of specimens stained with multiple fluorophores. Spectral imaging is the capture, processing, display and interpretation of images with a high number of spectral channels. Multispectral imaging is the simultaneous or serial acquisition of imaging data from two or more discrete spectral bands. The whole spectrum of a fluorescence emission can be determined by using spectral imaging. The overall shape of a spectrum can provide more information than just a few wave- lengths. In principle, spectral imaging is like having a large number of spectrophotometers working in parallel. Preliminary results from a spectrally-resolved version of this instrument have been reported by Constantinou et al.65
