New Imaging Technique Provides Rapid, High-definition Chemistry
March 20, 2011
Funded by the National Science Foundation's Major Research Instrumentation Program, researchers have developed a new technique called Infrared Environmental Imaging (IRENI) that cuts the amount of time needed to image a sample of human tissue from hours to minutes. IRENI produces high-resolution images that do not have to be tagged or stained as they would for imaging with an optical microscope.
