How does label-free live cell imaging work? - CytoSMART Academy

In this video we explain the techniques behind label-free live cell imaging, focusing on brightfield, phase contrast and DIC (differential interference contrast) microscopy. The benefits of using those techniques are discussed with the only disadvantage being that it’s a bit harder to distinguish detailed and internal structures inside the cell. However, label-free live cell imaging is an important tool to identify and quantify important cellular processes, such as proliferation, migration, cell motility, differentiation, cell death etc.
