To normalize Pixel intensities allowing for differing pixel/micron ratios

Trevor Grigg
How can you normalize the mean gray value of pixel intensities 8  bit (0-255)taken of cells when the images are at different magnifications 400x or 630x  with pixels/micron being at 3.723 for some images and 5.882 for other images. I am measuring the mean pixel intensity of each cell (ROI) and the distribution of these means I am using to form a box and whisker chart to measure the fluorescence of my peptide within the population of cells. I am new to using Image J but I’m on a fast learning curve and I’m asking if someone can please assist me. Thank you

This is a cross-post from the ImageJ-Forum:

Good day Trevor,

I'd recommend to measure the same object with both microscope settings.
The reason is that the optics will have different transfer characteristics.

Regards

Herbie
