Paper Abstract

Two-photon fluorescence spectroscopy has been performed on rat skeletal muscles to investigate the effect of fixation processes on the micro-environments of the endogenous fluorophores in rat skeletal muscles. The two-photon fluorescence spectra measured for different fixation periods show a differential among those samples that were fixed in water, formalin and methanol, respectively. The result imply that two-photon fluorescence spectroscopy can be a potential technique for identification of healthy and malignant biological tissues.
