Live Cell Imaging Using Sub-Micron IR Spectroscopy

March 5, 2024
8:00 a.m. PST / 11:00 a.m. EST / 16:00 GMT / 17:00 CET - Duration: 60 Minutes


Join Asst. Prof Caitlin Davis of Yale University to learn about recent research on a critical metabolic process in live cells – de novo lipogenesis, using a breakthrough new technology that enables IR spectroscopy and imaging at submicron spatial resolution on a wide range of samples including in water. The breakthrough technology that enables sub-micron IR spectroscopy is Optical Photothermal IR Spectroscopy (O-PTIR). Prof. Davis will discuss how she uses O-PTIR to probe metabolic heterogeneity in live cells with rapid sub-micron IR imaging.  

In the opening part of this webinar, hear from Dr. Mustafa Kansiz (PSC), as he provides an introductory overview of O-PTIR and how it’s being used by scientists in a wide range of application areas including, life science, microplastics, pharmaceutical sub-visible particulates and contamination identification in industrial failure analysis. 

Key Learning Objectives:
  • Understand the principle of operation for submicron IR spectroscopy 
  • Learn about specific applications of simultaneous IR and Raman 
  • How O-PTIR can advance your research goals and increase the impact of your publications 
Who Should Attend:
  • Research Professors and Academics 
  • Laboratory Directors and Managers  
  • Industrial Failure Analysis Engineers
  • Chemical and Polymer Engineers and Scientists
  • Vibrational Spectroscopists
