Abstract

A method is proposed for measuring the nucleo-cytoplasmic ratio automatically. The examined samples are macrophages of mice obtained from the peritoneal cavity. A computer program has been devised for the measurement of the spreading of these macrophages using a Quantimet 720 analyser. Comparison with results obtained manually allowed us to demonstrate the reliability of the automatic analysis.
