Paper Abstract

We present applications of a label-free approach to assess the immune response based on the combination of interferometric microscopy and Raman spectroscopy, which makes it possible to simultaneously acquire morphological and molecular information of live cells. We employ this approach to derive statistical models for predicting the activation state of macrophage cells based both on morphological parameters extracted from the high-throughput full-field quantitative phase imaging, and on the molecular content information acquired through Raman spectroscopy. We also employ a system for 3D imaging based on coherence gating, enabling specific targeting of the Raman channel to structures of interest within tissue.
