Particle in Cell-3D

Particle in Cell-3D is an ImageJ Macro designed to quantify the uptake of macro- and nanoparticles by cells.


Routines 1, 2 and 3:

  • Confocal fluorescence image stack of a single cell with stained plasma membrane
  • Respective image stack of nanoparticles

Routines 4 and 5:

  • Confocal fluorescence image stack of nanoparticles
