PURPOSE A web-based application was developed to remotely view slide specimens and control all functions of a research-level light microscopy workstation, called AccessScope. Students and scientists with upper limb mobility and visual impairments are often unable to use a light microscope by themselves and must depend on others in its operation. METHOD(More)
Microscopic imaging is one of the most common techniques for investigating biological systems. In recent years there has been a tremendous growth in the volume of biological imaging data owing to rapid advances in optical instrumentation, high-speed cameras and fluorescent probes. Powerful semantic analysis tools are required to exploit the full potential(More)
High-throughput biological imaging uses automated imaging devices to collect a large number of microscopic images for analysis of biological systems and validation of scientific hypotheses. Efficient manipulation of these datasets for knowledge discovery requires high-performance computational resources, efficient storage, and automated tools for extracting(More)

Disease outbreaks due to contaminated food are a major concern not only for the food-processing industry but also for the public at large. Techniques for automated detection and classification of microorganisms can be a great help in preventing outbreaks and maintaining the safety of the nations food supply. Identification and classification of foodborne(More)
data. The analysis is divided into low-and high-level processing. At the lower level, we address issues like segmentation, tracking, and object recognition, and at the high level, we use finite state machine-and Petri-net-based models for spatiotemporal event recognition.

Figure 17. A representative set of images for the apoptosis screen showing HL60 cells in different states. (Upper left) Hoechst33342, (Upper right) Annexin V FITC, (Lower left) PI, (Lower right) Merged image. Images were aquired using an E1000 fluorescence microscope (Nikon, Tokoyo, Japan) using a 60x 1.4 NA lens. Fluorescence images of the PI, Annexin V(More)

A novel and simple cell-based detection system with a collagen-encapsulated B-lymphocyte cell line as a biosensor for rapid detection of pathogens and toxins. speed classification of individual bacterial cells using a model-based light scatter system and multivariate(More)
Biological and pharmaceutical research relies heavily on microscopically imaging cell populations for understanding their structure and function. Much work has been done on automated analysis of biological images, but image analysis tools are generally focused only on extracting quantitative information for validating a particular hypothesis. Images contain(More)
