2see-iPS

We provide a new tool to aid researchers in identifying true murine iPS cell colonies, solely based on visual aspects. Its operation is based on an association study of the colonies morphology with alkaline phosphatase, using MAMDANI fuzzy logic modeling. By observing colonies characteristics under the microscope the rate of success on picking true colonies can be increased up to 85%. Click on the image to visit the specific website.
