Lipofuscin composition by imaging mass spectrometry

What is it about?

A new, highly specific method to discover lipofuscin components.

Why is it important?

Lipofuscin is an age marker in the eye. Clinical changes in lipofuscin fluorescence indicate the appearance of age-related macular degeneration.
