The research team developed a minimally modified probe that can be triggered by a broad range of visible light.
The endoscope is likely to be especially useful for optogenetics, and could prove useful for monitoring cells and tissues during medical procedures as well as for technical inspections.
Three studies demonstrate how a label-free 3D microscopy technique enables researchers to observe morphological and chemical alterations of host cells due to the malaria parasite infection.
The optical imaging system cancels the chromatic optical aberrations present in a specific person's eye, allowing for a more accurate assessment of vision and eye health.
These anatomical indications add to the previously existing esophageal applications for the OCT imaging system.
Researchers used superresolution microscopy to observe key molecules at work inside living brain cells, helping to uncover memory formation and the elusive causes of dementia.
The newly developed device, which pairs to a smartphone to scan biological samples for real viruses, is portable, low-cost, and battery-powered.
The technique uses ultrasound to noninvasively take optical images through a turbid medium such as biological tissue to image the body's organs.
Researchers developed an IR chemical imaging method that could enable improved prostate cancer detection and cut down on unnecessary surgeries.
The microrobots can deliver drugs to specific spots inside the body while being monitored and controlled via a photoacoustic method from outside the body.
The molecular imaging probes could potentially be used in test strips for urine samples, making it a noninvasive acute kidney failure detection method.
Using a confocal microscopy method, the research team examined the effects of different dietary fats in an experimental rodent model of type 1 diabetes.
The research team's fluorescent antibody-based, genetically encoded probe works in living cells, and is low-cost.
The OCT device features a redesigned, 3D-printed spectrometer to make it 15X lighter and smaller than current commercial systems.
The IR imaging test takes 20 minutes compared to an MRI, which may take up to 45 minutes.
