Macrophages under the microscope

The FLU­MIAS ex­per­i­ment will in­ves­ti­gate the cy­toskele­ton and nu­clei of live hu­man im­mune cells. The Live Cell Imag­ing method us­es spe­cial dyes or flu­o­res­cent pro­tein mark­ers to high­light spe­cif­ic cell struc­tures. In this im­age the blue cell nu­clei can eas­i­ly be dis­tin­guished with­in the over­all cel­lu­lar struc­ture.

The FLUMIAS experiment will investigate the cytoskeleton and nuclei of live human immune cells. The Live Cell Imaging method uses special dyes or fluorescent protein markers to highlight specific cell structures. In this image the blue cell nuclei can easily be distinguished within the overall cellular structure.
