Also included in the PowerPack is the Basler Video Recording Software for capturing single images, high-speed videos and image sequences for time-lapse microscopy.
Using so-called time-lapse microscopy, researchers can observe individual cells at very high time resolutions and, using fluorescent labeling, they can recognize precisely which of these proteins appear in the cell.
In the UA Systematic Bioengineering Laboratory, which Wong directs, researchers used a combination of single-cell gene expression analysis, computational modeling and time-lapse microscopy to track leader cell formation and behavior in vitro in human breast cancer cells and in vivo in mice epithelial cells under a confocal microscope.
The method uses time-lapse microscopy to monitor individual yeast cells undergoing a small number of divisions to form microcolonies and can measure the lag times and growth rates of as many as 80,000 individual microcolonies in a single 24-hour experiment, opening up a powerful new high-throughput tool to study the complex interplay between cell growth, division and metabolism under environmental conditions that are likely to be ecologically relevant but had previously been difficult to study in the laboratory.
However, time-lapse microscopy of the triple mutant, which was overproducing FtsZ, revealed that branches arose from abnormal septation events.
In stunning color images using time-lapse microscopy, scientists at the University of Illinois at Chicago for the first time have captured the very earliest stages of HIV infection in living cells.
At 22 hours post fertilization (hpf), injected embryos were prepared for time-lapse microscopy.
To answer these questions, I will use time-lapse microscopy linked to mathematical PK/PD modeling, transcriptomic and proteomic studies and clinical microbiology techniques to provide high quality molecular and PK/PD pre-clinical data to inform the design of future BLM TB clinical trials.
The Barbaric research combined the use of time-lapse microscopy, single-cell tracking and mathematical modeling to characterize bottlenecks affecting the survival of normal human embryonic stem cells and compared them with adapted cells.
The researchers used time-lapse microscopy over several days to show that early compression also induced coherent rotation in the malignant cells, a characteristic feature of normal development.
To determine whether microtubules play a role in the placement of the nucleus at the cell center, we used time-lapse microscopy to examine the position of the nucleus in interphase cells treated with the microtubule-depolymerizing drug MBC.
This will enable more reliable in vivo imaging of labelled cells, labelling of subcellular structures for time-lapse microscopy and intracellular biosensing.
