Expanding Bioimaging’s Palette

Researchers from Columbia University, USA, say proof-of-principle demonstrations of their new super-multiplex vibrational imaging platform could eventually expand the current, limited five-color palette available with fluorescence microscopy by nearly five times, to 24 colors.With this new platform, the team says researchers could eventually view 24 different sub-cellular structures simultaneously in a single sample, with higher specificity and sensitivity than traditional fluorescence and Raman microscopy techniques.
