WEBSITE UNDER CONSTRUCTION - DATA NOT UPLOADED YET - EXPECTED RELEASE JUNE 2022

Tools

CANCOL (Imaris plugin and standalone)

Ccreates an additional virtual imaging channel (magenta) specific for the cells of interest.

Enhances the automatic tracking of immune cells, avoiding mistakes possibly introduced by AI.
--> Useful when cells emit in multipe acquisition channels or when they become dim.

The user just has to draw a few lines on the cells of interest and other lines on the background or other cells.

Example results:

 

Motility heatmap

This tool reads Imaris files (ims) and creates a motility heatmap based on Optical Flow as described in Pizzagalli et al. Frontiers in Immunology (2019)
It is useful to identify hotspots with high motility, or to analyze cell motility without requiring tracking.

General motility measures (track based and step based)

This tool reads Imaris exported xls files, as well as TrackMate xml files and computes basic motility patterns  useful in intravital imaging studies including:
track length, speed, directionality, displacement, arrest coefficient, density. Moroever, it creates plots of track with common origin.
download link will be provided before the aiivm workshop of May2022

 

Cell action recognition (track-based)

This tool to detects and count actions of neutrophils as described in Pizzagalli et al. Frontiers in Immunology (2019)
https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fimmu.2019.02621/abstract
Like a FACS gating, but for motility patterns
download link will be provided before the aiivm workshop of May2022
