FACS (fluorescence-activated cell sorting) machine. This machine makes it possible to view the cells and analyse their specific surface markers by using fluorochrome-conjugated antibodies directed against the markers of interest. In this way, the cell types can be distinguished. The aim is to study the cell modifications that the molecule ABX464 could produce on the target cells by determining the expression of specific markers. This molecule is a drug candidate that can reduce virus reservoirs in patients with chronic HIV. The machine can also identify whether the cells are infected. This photograph was taken in the CNRS-ABIVAX cooperative laboratory attached to the Institute of Molecular Genetics of Montpellier (IGMM).
