A study of cancer cells by digital holographic imaging, fluorescence and a combination thereof
Digital holographic imaging is a label-free, non-toxic quantitative method that can be used for single cell analysis for a long time period. Sofia Kamlund, PhD, Lund University and Phase Holographic Imaging, has used this method in her thesis Not all those who wander are lost – A Study of Cancer Cells by Digital Holographic Imaging, Fluorescence and a combination there of. The technique allows the researcher to follow changes over time and evaluate cell response on living cells.

TRPM2 modulates neutrophil attraction to murine tumor cells by regulating CXCL2 expression
Cancer kills millions of people every year and is one of humanity’s greatest health challenges. In recent years, immune cells were shown to play critical roles in tumor growth and metastatic progression. The environment where tumor cells live consists of a wide range of cell types, among them immune cells. Even though the power is …
