P1 - Induced cellular deformation as a standardized measurement method based on modified Micro-ESPI

C. Stollfuß, K.H. Lietzau & A. H. Foitzik
During the course of their lifetime cells are exposed to different kinds of mechanical stress. These mechanical effects have a strong influence on a single cell, aggregated cells, their structure and metabolism especially in case of immunologic reaction similar to a chemical stimuli.Aim of this work is to introduce a modified electronic speckle pattern interferometry (ESPI) setup to this field of science to validate induced deformations in certain biological samples contact-free and thus close to...
