Confocal imaging of a SARS-CoV-2-infected epithelia at 4 dpi (orthogonal sections)

STELLARIS Contributes to Understanding COVID-19 Infection

What are the structural and functional consequences of a SARS-CoV-2 infection? To answer this important question, the authors used 3D cultures that mimic an airway epithelium and used different…

New Standard in Electrophysiology and Deep Tissue Imaging

The function of nerve and muscle cells relies on ionic currents flowing through ion channels. These ion channels play a major role in cell physiology. One way to investigate ion channels is to use…
