An automatic monitoring system for epithelial cell height

Abstract

This paper describes an automatic method to measure cell height (h) of epithelia grown as monolayers on transparent filter supports. Tissues are mounted in an Ussing-type chamber enabling solution exchange on both sides. The apical and basal side of the epithelial cells are marked with fluorescent beads. The image of the fluospheres is captured with a video… (More)
