We developed a novel label-free imaging approach, named Photonic Resonator Outcoupler Microscopy (PROM) utilizing the reduction of the peak-resonance intensity reflected from a photonic crystal surface. PROM can monitor the variation of focal adhesion areas in live cells dynamically and quantitatively for extended time.
