Digestion enzymatique de cellules par de la trypsine

Enzymatic digestion of cells using trypsin in order to detach those adhering to the culture dish and amplify them by seeding in new dishes. The aim is for these cells to divide and carry on multiplying. These human cells will then 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.
