Get ready for a new Applied Sciences Special Issue!

“Novel Approaches of Digital Holographic Microscopy in Cell Biology”

Dear Colleagues,

Cell culture as a method has developed into studying undisturbed cells in an environment as close as possible to the natural.
Digital holographic microscopy is well suited for this task, as it causes no phototoxicity and the monitoring does not affect the cells. Even though the use of digital holographic microscopy in cell biology is well established by now, the development of new applications is frequent.

This special issue is intended to collect and promote novel ways to apply digital holographic microscopy to study cells, and to show the wide spectrum of the technique and the possible applications. Our aim is to provide cell biology researchers with insight into a cell friendly, versatile method with high future potential within life science and medicine.

About the Special Issue Guest Editors

We are thrilled that our CSO, Kersti Alm, was invited to join this special issue. Kersti is a powerhouse advocating for non-invasive live cell analysis and has dedicated her scientific career to developing a cell imaging method that will neither cause cell stress nor harm while also providing accurate kinetic data — digital holographic microscopy, a type of quantitative phase imaging (QPI). We are honored that she is joined by Malmö University Professor Annette Gjörloff Wingren. Annette is an expert in digital holographic cytometry and has been a PHI partner for many years.
