    Multiphoton Microscopy Protocol Reveals Breast Cell Function, Behavior Inside Living Tissue

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    A team from the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research in Australia has shown the ability to image tissue cells in the breast, without harming them, to observe their behavior at microscopic levels. The team used multiphoton microscopy, a technique using infrared lasers to illuminate fluorescently labeled cells.

    The protocol enabled the researchers to observe how developing and formed cells in the breast rearrange, interact, and sense their environment over the development of the breast itself. It also allowed them to capture high-resolution images of the affected cells’ movement in hard-to-reach regions of breast tissue, improving understanding of cell function.

    The ability to image different stages of breast…
