Contamination: the worst enemy of cell biologists…
Little, horrible bacteria or yeast colonizing your cells’ culture and forcing you to throw them away after weeks, if not months of experiments… Who wouldn’t cry :’-( ?
This week it happened to us… Both bacteria and yeast were happily invading our cell culture dish.
Instead of getting upset, we decided to turn the misfortune into an opportunity and we chose to examine these little guys in more depth using our 3D Cell Explorer.
Please note that the digital staining panel representing the different RI ranges was kept the same in all experiments. Each square is representative of a specific cell type.
This is a first step towards a future of automatized cell segmentation!
