Time-resolved luminescence technique: probes, instruments, and biomedical applications

There are major issues arising from the complex nature of biomolecules. The current fluorescence methods differentiate analytes by colours, considerably limiting the total number of species to be detected simultaneously and the throughput of biodetection. The intrinsic autofluorescence from non-target organisms also interferes with the visibility of targeted organisms, especially when detecting trace amounts of agents within complex samples. Time-Resolved Luminescence (TRL) technique has been proposed to explore the temporal domain in order to break through these limitations. In this talk, I will to summarize our recent progress in probes, instruments as well as biomedical applications associated with TGL technique. We developed three types of rare-earth nanoparticles capable of tuning luminescence lifetimes, ideal for multiplexed and background-free biosensing. These nanoparticles were characterized and applied in our purpose-built orthogonal scanning automated microscopy, time-resolved confocal microscopy/spectroscopy, and 3-D flow cytometry, which we implemented for rare-event pathogen detection, quantitative analyses of cell surface antigens, and multiplexed biodetection either using nanoparticle biolabels or suspension arrays. We believe this will lead to a powerful platform for bioinformatic discovery, environmental screening, pharmaceutical development, and biomedical diagnoses.

Image based determination of optical attenuation for fluence compensation in optoacoustic imaging

Optoacoustic (OA) imaging allows the detection of absorbing structures inside the human body, based on the ultrasound that is generated upon the thermalization of absorbed light when irradiating the tissue with short laser pulses. In spectral OA imaging, differences in the absorption spectra of oxy- and deoxyhaemoglobin can be used for imaging the blood oxygenation in a multi-wavelength approach. For the correct interpretation of the spectral slope of the signal, knowledge of the wavelength-dependent fluence is required (fluence compensation).

I will present our current research on a novel method that in principle allows determining the effective attenuation coefficient based on the OA image itself, without any a priori knowledge and in real-time. This method is promising for fast fluence compensation for more accurate spectral OA imaging as a novel functional modality combined with real-time diagnostic ultrasound.
