This software uses novel algorithms to segment the HD phase-contrast images which facilitates (1) label-free true cell counting (2) extraction of basic morphological features of individual cells (e.g. size, shape), and (3) measurement of fluorescence intensity that originates from within each cell (‘fluorescence within a phase boundary’). The ability to analyse at a cell-by-cell level will enable the characterisation of subsets and the power to monitor these individual groups in their response to various stimuli.
