British scientists use advanced imaging to observe cell apoptosis in 3D

Researchers from both the Imperial College London and the University College London have used an advanced imaging technique to capture 3D visualizations of cell processes, including apoptosis, in zebrafish, according to research published in the  Journal of Biophotonics.

The scientists used optical projection tomography and fluorescence lifetime imaging to map the activity of a biosensor throughout an intact zebrafish, providing a powerful means to visualize cell processes in their physiological context.

The research could have applications in future drug discovery and could provide a way to visualize whole body responses to potential treatments.
