   Dear all,

   There  is  software  (+  hardware) indeed to separate autofluorescence
   from  real  fluorescence. Spectral imaging is the way to unmix signals
   based  on  their  spectral  characteristics.  Autofluorescence  has  a
   slightly  different  spectral  characteristic than "real" fluorescence
   and can  therefore  be  nicely  separated  from each other. At the CRI
   website  ([1]http://www.cri-inc.com/products/nuance.asp) you should be
   able  to  find  some good examples of it. Sorry folks I work with that
   great  system  now  for  a  couple  of months for both brightfield and
   fluorescence, but I never considered it as being fraud.......

   NB: you will see it isn't "fraud" in NSH workshop #2: "Immunoenzymatic
   multiple  staining methods - A practical overview and possibilities of
   multi-color  imaging  by  spectral analysis" by Chris van der Loos and
   Richard Levenson. (Saturday September 9th, whole day)

   Geoff is absolutely correct!!!
