Differences in Dynamic and Morphological Phenotypic Characteristics Enabled Label-Free Individual Cell Analysis
28 April 2017
Segmentation of individual cells within traditional label-free images can be very challenging, so researchers often resort to a population averaged approach. In this application note, a Quantitative Phase Imaging (QPI) technique is used to produce time course data over three antibiotic treatments. This technique is shown to produce data on an individual cell level, revealing distinct differences in the cell behavior. These differences would not be distinguished using a population averaged analysis.
