A National Research Infrastructure for Biological Imaging

Chemical imaging methods : Infrared and Raman Microscopy in Cellular and Tissue bioimaging — June 20, 2018 — 9am-12pm

Other Events

This conference is organized by the “Réseau d’Imagerie Cellulaire Paris-Saclay”.

The two most common techniques of vibrational micro-spectroscopy are infrared (IR) and Raman. These two sophisticated tools enable to visualize the inherent vibrational spectra of biochemical constituents of a cell or a tissue. Therefore, IR and Raman microscopy provide the specific and distinct “fingerprint” spectrum of each cell and offer the powerful possibility of high contrast images without any external labeling.

Recently, significant developments of these approaches provided a better access of these two techniques by the biologist community. Currently, IR and Raman microscopy are used for tissues, biopsies, animal and plant analyses in order to visualize proteins (C-H3 bonds), lipids (C-H2 bonds), water (O-H bonds), membranes, myelin, chromophores such as flavins, etc …
