Optical microscopy of live cells and tissues provides the main insight for life science researchers in academia and bio-pharma. The cells have very small features, are transparent, and require long term observations (hours to days) to measure the effects of drugs and diseases. New technologies - under the umbrella term of Quantitative Phase Imaging (QPI) - have come to light in the past decade to challenge and complement the current state of the art solutions that use fluorophores. Phi Optics talk will outline their lessons learned in the process of bringing an academic idea to the commercial space.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
