    Internal physiology of live krill revealed using new aquaria techniques and mixed optical microscopy and optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging techniques

    The accurate observation of physiological changes on in vivo samples of important animal species such as Euphausia superba (Antarctic krill) is an important goal in helping to understand how environmental changes can affect animal development. Using a custom made ‘krill trap’, live un-anaesthetized krill were confined for seven hours, during which three hours of optical imaging were obtained and no subsequent ill effects observed. The trap enabled two imaging methods to be employed: optical coherence tomography (OCT) and microscopy. OCT enabled internal structure and tissues to be imaged to a depth of approximately 2 mm and resolution of approximately 12 ...
