The Indica Labs Microglial Activation Quantification software measures microglial cell activation levels in brightfield whole slide images and photo-micrographs. This patent pending software detects microglial soma and processes and ultimately reports the number of activated microglial cells, and the number of inactivated microglial cells, and the number of negative (non-microglia) cells.
In addition to cell classification and counting, this tool precisely measures cell processes. It reports the total process area and length, as well as the average process area, length, and thickness on a per cell basis. Furthermore, it quantifies process branching by counting the number of branch points per cell.
