Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) was used for the first time to locate stem cells in the corneal stroma. An off-line microscope was used in Diamond light source and a bovine cryo-section was examined. Differences in spectra from two different regions suggest the existence of a cell population that has stem cell characteristics. Synchrotron FTIR would provide a greater scanning resolution than the off-line microscope used, therefore it could be an ideal technique to locate stromal stem cells in the cornea.
