Single Bacteria

Single bacteria
  • System: LabRAM HR
  • Time per point: 1 ms
  • Step size: 0.5 µm
  • Data points: 13,098

Isotope labelling of single bacteria allows the role of different species within the environment to be investigated.   This SWIFT™ ultra-fast Raman image was acquired by monitoring the resonance Raman  signal of the bacteria carotenoid chemicals, which show a significant shift caused by the isotope labels.
