Many fundamental biological processes, such as the search for food, immunological responses and wound healing, depend on cell migration. Video microscopy allows the magnitude and direction of cell migration to be documented. Here, we present a simple and inexpensive method for simultaneous tracking of hundreds of migrating cells over periods of several days. Low-magnification dark-field microscopy was used to visualize individual cells whereas time-lapse video images were acquired by computer… CONTINUE READING
