A finger on the pulse: Current molecular analysis of cells and tissues routinely relies on separation, enrichment, and subsequent measurements by various assays. Now, a platform of hyperspectral stimulated Raman scattering microscopy has been developed for the fast, quantitative, and label-free imaging of biomolecules in intact tissues using spectroscopic fingerprints as the contrast mechanism.
