    Superresolution Imaging on the SPOT

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    A technique called SPOT (spectrum and polarization optical tomography) is providing researchers with a “street view” of lipid membranes surrounding cell organelles, thereby allowing insight into lipid dynamics. The work is the result of a collaboration between Peking University and the University of Technology Sydney-Southern University of Science and Technology (UTS-SUStech) Joint Research Centre for Biomedical Materials and Devices.

    The lipid membranes surrounding organelles play a vital role in a cell’s dynamics, though their study has proved challenging due to the limitations of superresolution microscopy techniques.

    “Their shape, composition, and phase synergistically regulate biophysical membrane…
