Label-free classification of human glioma cells by infrared spectroscopic imaging

M. Kirsch, S. Küchler, A. Hermann, G. Schackert & G. Steiner
Objective: The discrimination of cell types at different stages of development is a crucial task in cell biology. Available techniques, based on an irreversible treatment of the cells, do not allow a sensitive label free characterization under in situ conditions. Infrared spectroscopic imaging is a [for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
