23 February 2018 Novel snapshot hyperspectral imager for fluorescence imaging
Author Affiliations +
Hyperspectral imaging has emerged as a new technique for the identification and classification of biological tissue1. Benefitting recent developments in sensor technology, the new class of hyperspectral imagers can capture entire hypercubes with single shot operation and it shows great potential for real-time imaging in biomedical sciences. This paper explores the use of a SnapShot imager in fluorescence imaging via microscope for the very first time. Utilizing the latest imaging sensor, the Snapshot imager is both compact and attachable via C-mount to any commercially available light microscope. Using this setup, fluorescence hypercubes of several cells were generated, containing both spatial and spectral information. The fluorescence images were acquired with one shot operation for all the emission range from visible to near infrared (VIS-IR). The paper will present the hypercubes obtained images from example tissues (475-630nm). This study demonstrates the potential of application in cell biology or biomedical applications for real time monitoring.
