OPT Bioptonics 3001

Optical projection tomography (OPT) is a new technique for generating three dimensional images of gene expression patterns or protein distribution. In contrast to other topmographic techniques, OPT benefits from the possibility to utilize the abundant pool of standard laboratory markers (such as antibodies, LacZ expression, in situ hybridization etc.) to generate contrast. Research performed at UCMM has demonstrated the potential of OPT as tool for imaging and quantification of intact adult mouse organs, e.g. in pancreatic beta-cell assessments in diabetes research.
