Abstract

Over the past few decades, several approaches have been used to image lipids in cells and tissues, but most have limited spatial resolution and sensitivity. Here, we discuss a relatively new approach, nanoscale secondary ion mass spectrometry imaging, that makes it possible to visualize lipids in cells and tissues in a quantitative fashion and with high spatial resolution and high sensitivity.
