Sofia Kamlund has studied Cell Division and Cell Movement using Digital Holographic Microscopy. Her research presents new ways of analyzing individual cells by using Holographic Microscopy alone or in combination with Fluorescence Microscopy.
PHI had a successful Holomonitor User Meeting where we discussed how to use HoloMonitor with focus on cancer research. The presentations showed new methods within cancer research and cell biology.
PHI’s Industrial Doctoral Student Louise Stenbaeck received a prize from Danish Cancer Society for her poster “Holographic microscopy: Macrophage-uptake of SA-MIPs”. Louise’s poster showed something new within cancer research on cell level. Her research within cell proliferation shows that morphological parameters and treatment with the plastic nanoparticles MIP:s (molecularly imprinted polymers) increased the values for cell
Cancer kills millions of people every year and is one of humanity’s greatest health challenges. In recent years, immune cells were shown to play critical roles in tumor growth and metastatic progression. The environment where tumor cells live consists of a wide range of cell types, among them immune cells. Even though the power is
“In the near future”, Zahra El-Schich says, “you could have a HoloMonitor in every clinic. You could also customize cancer treatment for every patient by just using a simple tumor test.” Find out how.
Using nanoparticles and HoloMonitor technology Prof. Anette Gjörloff Wingren and her team aim to develop an early screening method that detects cancer by a simple blood test.
