Imaging technologies of the BIC used to understand COVID-19 infection

The Bordeaux Imaging Center (one of the French Nodes of Euro-BioImaging) is contributing to an important study led by the University of Bordeaux to understand COVID-19 infection and inflammatory response using fully differentiated human bronchial epithelium as model.

Fluorescent imaging techniques such as immune fluorescence and RNAscope technology will be used in this highly relevant physiological system to determine if a particular cell type is (preferentially) infected by the virus.

Dr Harald Wodrich, INSERM Research Director at the University of Bordeaux, explains it in this article:
