Measuring Respiratory Burst in Alveolar Macrophages

Abstract

Alveolar macrophages are white blood cells in the lungs which become activated and undergo a change in cell shape and increase of metabolic activity as they encounter foreign particles. The increase of the oxidative metabolism is a process called “respiratory burst.” The main goal of this work is to automate the quantitative measurement of respiratory burst… (More)
