Human Neutrophils Race through the Maze

Lab Note #8
Apr 15, 2014
We are using human neutrophils as a reference for how fast Dicty and HL60 cells should be advancing through the maze.  How amazing these neutrophils are, protecting us from infections !  The first neutrophil completes the almost 1 mm maze-run in just 42 minutes.  
As you have noticed, the movie runs faster than the real time experiment. About 150 minutes are being compressed in just 1 minute.  Movie by Bashar Hamza.
