Paper Abstract

In order to understand the distribution of endogenous fluorescence in the ovary, ovarian biopsies were maintained with a viable tissue imaging system and characterized with multiphoton imaging. It was imperative to maintain a stable in vitro environment so that tissue images could provide accurate correlative data for in vivo spectroscopic measurements. Evaluating tissue viability in real time poses a difficult task given that viability assays are tailored for cell culture. The focus of this study was to design a robust in vitro imaging chamber for assessment of ovarian autofluorescence and simple, reliable viability assays for tissue status monitoring.
