Digital Holographic Microscope Generates Label-free Cell Measurements

The cells’ reactions to stress is measured through a method in which a laser beam is first split into two light paths. One of the light paths passes through a cell sample, and one does not. The two beams are then recombined at a slight offset angle. It is then possible to read changes in the cell’s properties through the variations in the beams’ phase offsets. ​​​ ​Illustration: Yen Strandqvist​
