JALA April 2013 Podcast: Automated Rotation Rate Tracking of Pigmented Cells by a Customized Block-Matching Algorithm
The authors preprocess each frame of a video sequence, then analyze the sequence frame by frame using a rotating-circle template with a block-matching algorithm, and estimate the rotation rate of the pigmented cells using a pixel-patch correlation.

JALA June 2012 Podcast: Automation of Cell-Based Drug Absorption Assays in 96-Well Format Using Permeable Support Systems
Cell-based drug absorption assays are an essential component of ADME/Tox testing for lead compounds. In this report, Apparent Permeability (Papp) and Efflux data demonstrate how an automated procedure, when compared to manual processing, provides a method that is less variable and is capable of delivering a more accurate assessment of a compound’s absorption characteristics.
