Fritz Slide Scanner Helps Researchers Understand the Cause of the Transformation of Murine PMCs in Connective Tissue
Researchers used our Fritz slide scanner in a study aimed at understanding the cause of the transformation of murine peritoneum-derived mast cells (PMCs) in connective tissue. Mast cells play a crucial role in both cancer progression and the immune response to infections by viruses and bacteria. They support angiogenesis, degradation of the extracellular matrix, and the transition from epithelial to mesenchymal cells. PMCs, which are mast cells isolated from the peritoneum, were the focus of the study. The goal was to determine why these PMCs were undergoing transformation.
What Were PreciPoint Products Used For?
Researchers used our Fritz Slide Scanner equipped with a 40x objective and our MicroPoint software for the microscopic review and interpretation of the MGG-stained MCs. To view or transfer data, researchers used our ViewPoint and ConvertPoint software.
