14 July 2020. New technology is offered by the Finnish Node – label-free CARS microscopy

The Finnish Advanced Light Microscopy Node is now offering Coherent Anti-Stokes Raman Scattering (CARS) microscopy. CARS microscopy is one of the label-free multiphoton imaging techniques. It allows for chemically specific imaging of biological materials without use of fluorescent labels. CARS has been proven useful in some very specific application fields. The CARS technique is particularly …
