Microscope Uses UV Light to Provide High-Res Images in Minutes, Without Damaging Tissue

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
SACRAMENTO, Calif., Dec. 6, 2017 — A fluorescence-based, slide-free optical imaging system, known as microscopy with UV surface excitation (MUSE), uses UV light at wavelengths below the 300-nm range to penetrate the surface of tissue samples by only a few microns — about the same thickness of tissue slices on traditional microscope slides. The MUSE technology is a nondestructive technique that, within minutes, can provide high-resolution diagnostic images resembling those obtained from conventional haematoxylin and eosin (H & E) histology. MUSE technology captures breast tissue with nerves coursing over and...Read full article
