The image is an overlay of 3 images representing the distribution of the 3 most abundant fluorophore signals that were extracted using advanced factorization algorithms. The 3 images were digitally colored red (1), green (2) and blue (3). The signals localized to different components in the RPE as illustrated by color mixing: RPE Cells (azure), sub-RPE deposits (pink). This method demonstrates that distinct fluorophore signals are localized to sub-RPE deposits in AMD tissues.
