Hyperspectral/Raman technique distinguishes lipids in cells for first time

Fruit fly lipids

This multi-colour image visualises structures containing different lipid subtypes that the researchers found in the same region of the fat body tissue within a fruit fly. Each lipid subtype has a different molecular composition that is represented by a different colour (image: Lingyan Shi / UC San Diego bioengineering)

Multiple subtypes of lipids are often found within the same cells, making it challenging to differentiate them. The new Raman scattering microscopy technique overcomes this
