Cell dynamics


Particle transport in neurites of a hippocampal neuron processor network (Z. Wang, L. Millet, V. Chan, H. Ding, M. U. Gillette, R. Bashir and G. Popescu, “Label-free intracellular transport measured by spatial light interference microscopy”, J. Biomed. Opt. 16, 026019 (2011))

 

 

Spatial Light Interference Microscopy (SLIM) for studying intra- and inter-cellular dynamics by tracking the movement of small organelles or analyzing a region of interest as a whole. Sub-nanometer sensitivity and diffraction limited resolution of SLIM provide ideal means to study the cell dynamics. The quantitative data yield actual mass transport information, in terms of diffusion coefficients and velocity distributions.
