About Adipose tissue

Adipocytes play an important role in energy and glucose metabolism, serving both as energy storage units as well as endocrine regulators for these processes. Being adipocyte size their major modulator, the measurement of adipocyte cross-sectional surface area has been widely used to provide accurate and reproducible characterization of metabolic-related diseases like obesity, diabetes and various cardiovascular diseases.

The direct measurement of adipocyte size by microscopy is widely used, although the method is tedious and time consuming. Computer-assisted image analysis can overcome most of the disadvantages associated with this technique. WimAdipose does the quantification for you in a fast, easy and automated way, so you can concentrate in other tasks that are more productive.

Results that make a difference

For every image that you upload, WimAdipose will generate an output CSV sheet file that will give you insight into the outcome of your experiment. Some of the measurements included are:

  • Cell count
  • Individual cell area
  • Mean cell area
  • Standard deviation of the cell area
  • Mean equivalent diameter
  • Equivalent diameter standard deviation

Besides, a detailed control image is generated in order to help you to visualize the parameters that WimAdipose provides you with:
