Caption: In the top panel, different modes of imaging the same cell show the differences between visible light microscopy and fluorescence imaging, and in the lower panel, the images resulting from Fourier-transform infrared spectromicroscopy. Infrared absorption at different frequencies pinpoints different cell components at specific locations in the living cell.
