Abstract

Digital holographic microscopy (DHM) is a technique that has high potential for analyzing biological samples and has been successfully applied to the study of cells and cell lines providing information about important parameters such as refractive index, morphology, and dry mass, among others; it has also found applicability to study the effects of therapeutic treatments. Finding the size and shape of cells is important since they tend to change in the presence of some pathologies. In this research work, we obtain the morphology thickness and refractive index of the A375 melanoma cell line through a slight tilting of the cell in a DHM setup. Further, the development of a novel mathematical expression based on this tilt and in the optical phase difference is presented. We show images of melanoma cells with the refractive index information included, and their morphology thickness as rendered from the holographic phase maps recorded with DHM.
