Epifluorescence of PVDF and PLA stained with Nile red in Aurelia sp. ephyrae jellyfish acquired together with holotomogram.

Epifluorescenza di PVDF e PLA colorato con rosso Nilo in Aurelia sp. meduse ephyrae acquisite insieme all'olotomogramma. Entrambi i materiali (colore rosso che rappresenta il canale di fluorescenza; indice di rifrazione 1,42 per PVDF e 1,4 per PLA) sono localizzati all'interno del corpo gelatinoso (intervallo di indice 1,355–1,378) dopo 24 ore di esposizione. Le barre equivalgono a 30 μm.

A new article has just been released: it is the result of the activity done in November 2021, a collaboration with CNR-ISMAR (Genoa UOS) and Schaefer South-East Europe, in which the Tomocube HT-2H has been used to do holotomographic imaging on the samples.
