Abstract
Fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM) was employed to noninvasively characterize metabolic function in primary human oral keratinocytes used to develop functional engineered tissues. Living cells were compared under control culture conditions and systematic variations to investigate cellular function and viability. Nonlinear optical microscopy via two-photon excitation was employed to image cellular metabolic biomarkers NAD(P)H and FAD with thin optical sectioning and minimal out-of-focus fluorophore photobleaching. Novel post-processing FLIM algorithms were developed and tested. Results suggest that FLIM may provide useful information about live cell function and viability.
