Scanning and resolution
Sequential and simultaneous
When imaging a single fluorescent dye it is usually only necessary to (1) select the laser which most efficiently excites the fluorophore and (2) select the emission filter that most efficiently allows the emitted fluorescent light to reach the detector.
