Due to characteristics like deep tissue penetration, less light damage that is helpful in live cell imaging, and decreased out-of-focus bleaching, multiphoton microscopy is becoming more and more popular across the globe. The Multiphoton Microscopy Market (MPM) is useful in identifying the evaluation of bladder cancer, spermatogenesis, and identification of tissue in prostate cancer surgery.

With the aid of the MPM technique, materials with quantifiable nonlinear optical responses, such as Second Harmonic Generation (SHG), Third Harmonic Generation (THG), or fluorescence induced by multiphoton absorption, can be mapped in three dimensions. MPM is a useful method of viewing the nonlinear microscopic world with high resolution in 3-D.

The biological development of MPM is now in progress, mainly a focus on deep tissue imaging, neurosciences, cancer detection, structural characterizations, protein quantification and localization, and application in other areas.
