This paper describes the design of a new, novel interference microscope system and presents images and data of live biological samples. Utilizing this technology enables the creation of phase image movies in real time so that dynamic motions and volumetric changes can be tracked. Phase values are converted to optical thickness data enabling volumetric, motion and morphological studies. Data from a number of different organisms will be presented highlighting examples of monitoring different biological processes and motions.
