This cell images dataset is collected using an ultrafast imaging system known as asymmetric-detection time-stretch optical microscopy (ATOM) for training and evaluation. This novel imaging approach can achieve label-free and high-contrast flow imaging with good cellular resolution images at a very high speed. Each acquired image belongs to one of the four classes: THP1, MCF7, MB231 and PBMC.
This dataset was prepared to aid in the creation of a machine learning algorithm that would classify the white blood cells in thin blood smears of juvenile Visayan warty pigs. The creation of this dataset was deemed imperative because of the limited availability of blood smear images collected from the critically endangered species on the internet. The dataset contains 3,457 images of various types of white blood cells (JPEG) with accompanying cell type labels (XLSX).
