Video: Quantitative, Live-Cell Kinetic Analysis of Microglial Function and Morphology
Microglia are the resident immune cells of the central nervous system and play significant roles in the regulation of homeostasis and the management of tissue response to inflammatory or pathological insults.
Microglia can phagocytose a variety of targets including E. coli bioparticles, apoptotic N2A cells, and physiologically relevant protein targets.
The Incucyte® S3 Live-Cell Analysis System can be used for Neuroscience purposes, with the pHrodo® Orange Cell Labeling Kit, to characterize morphology and quantify functional phagocytic and efferocytic activity in microglia.
