Molecule Order Imaging

Imaging lipid order in living tissues:

When associated to polarization-resolved measurement schemes, Lightcore Technologies BondXplorer microscope provides label-free chemical bond orientation in complex system such as mouse myelin sheath.

BondXplorer microscope resolved in polarization reveals the orientation of C-H bonds in mouse Myelin sheath. Field of view 150 µm x 150 µm.
