The application of interferometric imaging in quantitative mechanobiology (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): Peter T. C. So

Paper Abstract

Quantitative interferometric microscopy is a power non-invasive technique to extract quantitative cellular and tissue biomechanical and morphological information. On one hand, we will describe several generations of quantitative interferometric microscopic systems with improved spectral contrast, depth resolution, and enhanced sensitivity. In conjunction with these advances in optical imaging techniques, important biomedical applications have become possible. We will focus on the identification of biophysical markers of sickle red blood cells and the study of cancer cell nuclear mechanics in relationship to their metastasis potential.
