How does label-free live-cell imaging work? - CytoSMART Academy

In this video, we explain the techniques behind label-free live-cell imaging, focusing on brightfield, phase contrast, and differential interference contrast (DIC) microscopy. The benefits of using those techniques are discussed, with the only disadvantage being the difficulty in distinguishing the internal structures of cells. However, label-free live-cell imaging is an important tool for the identification and quantification of important cellular processes, such as cell proliferation, migration, cell motility, differentiation, and cell death.
