Being able to monitor cells over several days under physiological conditions is a prerequisite for many cell-based assays and cell culture studies.
Stage Top Incubators are commonly used on microscope stages to keep important parameters constant over time, such as temperature, CO2 concentration and humidity. This setup allows the study of cells over long periods of time under physiological conditions directly on the microscope.
In this study, we take the next step to combine live cell studies with Whole Slide Imaging (WSI). The entire petri dish is scanned in full resolution at pre-defined time points. Thus, all cells can be tracked seamlessly and no information is lost.
