The immune system is a highly complex biological network of organs, cells, and molecules that protect the host against infectious diseases and some forms of cancer. The intrinsic complexity of the immune system and its involvement in a multitude of fundamental physiological processes demands the application of a wide range of scientific tools that can provide an in-depth insight into immune function.

Time-lapse imaging of cell cultures can shed light on fundamental aspects of immune cell behavior by visualizing complex biological processes in real time. Live-cell imaging allows scientists to save time and resources while gaining novel insights into immunobiology.
