BACKGROUND

PfFit (ver2.01) is a three-part program for the calculation of osmotic water permeability of cell membrane (Pf) from volume changes of a spherical, wall-less cell, evoked by a non-instantaneous change of osmolarity in the external medium. The Pf calculation takes into account the rate of the osmolarity change.

It is a stand-alone MATLAB program written by Nava Moran and Menachem Moshelion, with GUI written by Roy Novik, compiled with the help of Deborah Weisman.
