Our Approach

Material

We will be using the Zeiss Axiovert 200 inverted microscope with a fully motorised stage, controlled by Improvision Volocity acquisition software. This system offers a full incubation chamber with temperature and CO2 control, a large range of filter sets from UV to far-red and a highly sensitive 1300x1000 pixel camera for fast low-light imaging.

Video images are captured into memory by the system at a basal video frame rate of 16.3Hz. This can be further increased by performing binning.


Microscope Video Characteristics

  • From our experience on the microscope, we observe the following:
    • Bacteria are rod shaped.
    • Some cells swim out of the focus plane
    • The images are noisy
    • Some cells seem to be undergoing division
    • Some cells appear to be dead as they are not moving or drift

Manual Tracking Methodology

  • We intend to track for each cell:
    • The centroid
    • The part of the cell in the direction of movement
  • We attempt to reduce the bias in our manual tracking
    • By disabling the view path option
    • By displacing the cursor away from the tracked cell before adding a new point
