  • Abstract
  • Here I will discuss my lab’s recent efforts to enable low-cost and highly sensitive molecular imaging using multispectral UV microscopy. Its surprising application to hematology and pathology will be described. In addition, I will present quantitative oblique back-illumination microscopy (qOBM), which enables epi-illumination tomographic quantitative phase imaging in thick scattering samples. qOBM’s unique ability to image thick samples quantitatively, with high image quality, high speed, low-cost and ease-of-use marks a substantial improvement from other 3D imaging technologies. I will describe qOBM in detail, show results from thick samples including blood in storage bags, intact whole mouse brains and organoids, and discuss future directions.
