Spectral analysis of the autofluorescence images of isolated cardiac cells was performed to evaluate and to classify the metabolic state of the cells in respect to the responses to metabolic modulators. The classification was done using machine learning approach based on support vector machine with the set of the automatically calculated features from recorded spectral profile of spectral autofluorescence images. This classification method was compared with the classical approach where the individual spectral components contributing to cell autofluorescence were estimated by spectral analysis, namely by blind source separation using non-negative matrix factorization. Comparison of both methods showed that machine learning can effectively classify the spectrally resolved autofluorescence images without the need of detailed knowledge about the sources of autofluorescence and their spectral properties.
