New Technique Paints Tissue Samples with Light

NIBIB-funded researchers have developed a new technique that uses light to reveal structures and molecules inside tissue samples without the use of chemical stains or dyes. The technique has the potential to reduce the time, cost, and effort needed to analyze tissues for clinical diagnoses and biomedical research and to provide a more objective method of analysis.
