Fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy is a technique for the production of images that are based on the difference in the exponential decay rate of fluorescence from a fluorescent sample. This technique is usually used in multiphoton tomography, confocal microscopy, and two-photon excitation microscopy. The fluorescence lifetime imaging technique has meritorious features, such as the fact that it is not dependent on the absorption of the sample, concentration, sample thickness, or excitation intensity, thus making it a robust technique in comparison to other intensity-based methods.
The technique is also associated with other parameters such as ion concentration, pH, oxygen concentration, and molecular binding, which enhances the demand for fluorescence lifetime as the most desirable imaging technique for the analysis of cells and tissue samples. Manufacturers are constantly striving to achieve better resolution and accuracy in imaging samples by providing excellent qualities of the components used in the fluorescence lifetime imaging technique. A pulsed laser source, a single photon-sensitive detector, and dichroic mirrors are essential for developing the fluorescence in a sample under investigation, and time-correlated single photon counting is used to measure the fluorescence lifetime.
As per the research cited in the 2015 World Health Organization report, cancer is one of the leading causes of death globally, resulting in approximately 8.8 million deaths in 2015, which is 1 in 6 deaths globally. Tremendous potential lies in the imaging devices and techniques industry to perform biopsy studies on cancerous cells to understand the disease progression and suggest an effective treatment regimen. Communicable diseases, if not diagnosed early, take a toll on people’s lives. Fluorescence lifetime imaging can be used to study the cellular function of the vectors in order to develop medicines that can kill the vectors and cure infectious diseases. Forster resonance energy transfer (FRET) has been used with fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopic technology to gain images of molecular interactions at the cellular level.
