Comptage de cellules au bleu trypan dans une cellule de comptage

Cell count using trypan blue in a counting chamber. This method makes it possible to determine the concentration of the cell suspension (number of cells per millilitre of culture) and cell viability (percentage of live cells). These human cells will be used to amplify the chikungunya virus for work on drug candidates. This photograph was taken at the P2 platform of the CNRS-ABIVAX cooperative laboratory attached to the Institute of Molecular Genetics of Montpellier (IGMM).

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.
