Polychrome labeling of bone with seven different fluorochromes: enhancing fluorochrome discrimination by spectral image analysis.


Bone formation and remodeling in vivo can be assessed by polychrome labeling using calcium-binding fluorescent dyes. The number of fluorochromes, however, limits this technique due to the fact that with increasing number, fluorescent spectra inevitably overlap, which makes discrimination more difficult. In order to enhance discrimination, we performed… (More)
