Intrinsic contrast methods such as quantitative phase imaging (QPI) enable label-free investigation of specimens and disease diagnosis--and promise to change the field of clinical pathology. Gradient field microscopy (GFM), an emerging QPI approach that provides high-contrast images of transparent cells and tissues, offers many advantages to life scientists. For instance, the images it acquires do not require processing, so its speed is limited only by that of the camera.
This webcast, presented by the developer of GFM, will discuss intrinsic contrast imaging in general, and QPI and GFM in particular. It will explore both operation and applications. It will also look at possibilities made available through these new approaches, including the promise of “smart microscopes” capable of real-time analysis and diagnosis.
