Immunology

Dysregulation of immune cells function can result in many serious and fatal diseases that require to re-modulate the immune cells and restore their normal response. Monitoring of immune cells while interacting with self-cells, pathogens, and cancer promotes our understanding of immune response or its failure mechanisms.

In recent years, immunotherapy gained high potential in cancer treatment as engineered T cells represent a powerful new approach for targeting cancer and autoimmune disorders. However, there are concerns about safety and off-target toxicity, as well as the development of resistance.

Q-Phase opens new horizons for studying spatiotemporal mechanisms and interactions of immune cells under label-free conditions, thus enabling various applications in research.

Superresolution microscopy is crucial for investigating cell-cell interaction and particularly, microbiological immunity (against bacteria and viruses).

Indeed, due to the small size (few nm to µm) of microbes, studying immune responses on cellular and molecular levels remains challenging in conventional optical microscopy, but this drawback could be overcome using the LiveCodim super-resolution module.
