Abstract

Label-free cellular assays have been gaining popularity over biochemical assays due to its ability to reveal cellular heterogeneity and identify rare cell populations. New technologies, in particular time-stretch imaging and quantitative phase imaging, have made large-scale single-cell phenotyping possible. This work focused on integrating different label-free biophysical and mechanical probing platform. This integrated platform empowers an in-depth analysis between biophysical properties such as mass density and mechanical properties such as stiffness, which could be expand a new territory for cell biology.
