Краткое описание

An automated system for morpho-topological determination of cell division phases and structural differentiation of tissues during morphogenesis was implemented on the basis of topological properties of cell cultures, analyzed within the naïve theory of sets. A simple robotic hardware and software system based on a Zeiss microscope with a modified stage and a Velleman manipulator KSR-1 allows controlling the laser module position, carrying out the angular irradiation of samples both in transmission and in darkfield or luminescent modes and the subsequent mathematical data processing. This low-budget system can be easily assembled and programmed in any cytomorphological or histomorphological laboratory using available materials at hand. The code for data processing in MATLAB is given at the end of the paper.
