Indica Lab’s pancreatic islet quantification software has been installed and is working beautifully on human and mouse islets. The software counts and measures islets and classifies cells within each islet. Cells can be measured for cytoplasmic (insulin, glucagon) and/or nuclear (Ki67) positivity. This software will be ideal for quantifying beta cell replication in human islets from diabetic organ donors and others for the JDRF nPOD program and also for mouse diabetes prevention and therapy preclinical studies.
