Does Diet matter when performing animal imaging studies?

matt By Matthew Ricci, Ph.D..

Unfortunately, many commonly used grain-based chow diets contain chlorophyll, which fluoresces at 680 nm and can therefore interfere with the detection of fluorophores. The result is that the GI tract of the animal will fluoresce and your signal of interest may be hard or impossible to quantify.
