Extracellular matrix

Observation and analysis of cells in a stromal extracellular matrix (ECM), for example, collagen and matrigel, are essential for a full understanding of cell behavior. ECM mimics the structure and composition of the in vivo environment and affects many cellular properties, particularly adhesion, migration, and differentiation.

Thanks to the coherence-gating effect, a unique feature enabled by Telight Q-Phase, the QPI image quality is not impaired by the presence of the disturbing matrix.  Therefore, the Q-Phase allows precise cell observation and analysis in scattering media.
