Abstract

Adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) are adult stem cells isolated from lipoaspirates. They are a good candidate for autologuous cell therapy and tissue engineering. For these applications, label-free imaging could be critical to assess noninvasively the efficiency of stem cell (SC) differentiation. We report on the development and application of a multimodal microscope to monitor and quantify ADSC differentiation into osteoblasts and adipocytes.
