Plaque, dans laquelle sont contenus les échantillons d’ARN extraits à tester

Plate holding RNA samples for testing and RT-qPCR (reverse transcription – quantitative polymerase chain reaction) reagents. This plate is inserted into the LightCycler instrument, which carries out the RT-qPCR reaction. The RNA is transformed into DNA, then amplified. The aim is to find out whether there is HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) in the sample, and in what quantity.

CNRS Images,

Our work is guided by the way scientists question the world around them and we translate their research into images to help people to understand the world better and to awaken their curiosity and wonderment.
