The Chemotaxis and Migration Tool is an ImageJ plug in. It is freely available and platform independent which means that the tool can be run on all major operating systems. The tool provides various graphs and statistical tests that allow advanced analysis of experimental data.
After cell tracking, the cells‘ paths can be plotted and analyzed for chemotactical effects. The simple to use microscopic calibration system provides access to a variety of parameters. For specific analyses, sector tools are available that count cells in angular or circular areas, known as Rose plots. A set of statistical tests complete the software package.
For tracking cells in a time stack, ibidi recommends using the Manual Tracking plug in available from: http://rsb.info.nih.gov/ij/plugins/track/track.html
