Explore macrophage biology 3D

Interactive 3D model of a cloaking, resident tissue macrophage

We are always looking for ways to better visualize and communicate the lab’s science. This is pretty cool: Sketchfab allows you to upload 3D models people can directly interact with, supposed to also have VR options… and you directly embed the model into your website. So click it, drag it, spin it, zoom in and out, and go wild with it…

DESCRIPTION Intravital microscopy allowed me to capture this individual resident tissue macrophage in the process of sending long membranous processes towards a laser-induced sterile stromal damage in order to contain it (“cloaking”). Fluorescence intensity data was rendered as an iso-surface in IMARIS, exported as .vrml, processed in MeshLab, saved as .stl, uploaded to Sketchfab, and finally ended up here. A long way for a single cell. Enjoy!

  1. I have been surfing online greater than 3 hours lately, but I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It’s beautiful worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers
    made good content material as you probably did, the web
    will probably be a lot more useful than ever before.
