Human cells infected with VACV ANCHOR poxvirus (green: infected cells, green
dots: viral DNA) and stained with WGA 555 (Magenta) and DAPI (blue) 20h
post infection. Cells acquired on CellInsight CX7 at 60X, camera full chip. We wish you a colorful year !

Orthopoxvirus titration using high resolution imaging. Cells are infected with serial dilution of VACV and stained with crystal violet. Following fixation, 24 well plate is scanned on Thermo Fisher Scientific CX7 Cellinsight.
Picture is a reconstruction of 374 fields, 3 picture /field (R/G/B) and displayed in real color. It took 5 min to acquire the 1122 images and reconstruct the full well. Is it useful in routine ? Of course not. Is it cool ? Indeed 🙂

We have been mandated by a company to test disinfection procedure on several class of viruses. 2 engineers doing the experiment in our BSL2+ laboratory. Results have shown a >3log10 decrease in infectious viruses using the decontamination procedure of our customer.
