Abstract

This page hosts the AbsorbanceQ app which generates absorbance images from brightfield image captures. Absorbance microscopy can be used to make trypan blue cell viability measurements more quantitative and traceable by measuring the moles of trypan blue in each dead cell. AbsorbanceQ was written in MATLAB and can be downloaded as a .zip file. When unzipped, the program will be installed and can run as a standalone .exe file with no dependencies beyond the operating system. This website includes images that can be downloaded to validate that AbsorbanceQ is functioning properly.
