Two-photon phosphorescence lifetime microscopy (2PLM) of Oxygen (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): Sergei A. Vinogradov

Paper Abstract

Molecular oxygen plays a unique role in cellular energy metabolism by serving as the terminal electron acceptor in the mitochondrial respiratory chain. Quantitative imaging of oxygen can provide invaluable information about metabolism in normal and diseased states. Two-photon phosphorescence lifetime microscopy (2PLM) enables imaging of oxygen concentration gradients in 3D with micron-scale resolution. The method has found use in neuroscience, stem cell and tumor biology. We will discuss the principles of 2PLM and focus on the new phosphorescent probes, which enable imaging of oxygen simultaneously with imaging of temperature.
