A multimode-TIRFM and microfluidic technique to examine platelet adhesion dynamics

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Researchpeer-review

Abstract

Fluorescence microscopy techniques have provided important insights into the structural and signalling events occurring during platelet adhesion under both static and blood flow conditions. However, due to limitations in sectioning ability and sensitivity these techniques are restricted in their capacity to precisely image the adhesion footprint of spreading platelets. In particular, investigation of platelet adhesion under hemodynamic shear stress requires an imaging platform with high spatial discrimination and sensitivity and rapid temporal resolution. This chapter describes in detail a multimode imaging approach combining total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy (TIRFM) with high speed epifluorescence and differential interference contrast (DIC) microscopy along with a novel microfluidic perfusion system developed in our laboratory to examine platelet membrane adhesion dynamics under static and flow conditions. ?
