Virus particles are really small....

Alongside basic virology, molecular biology and biochemical methods we are using advanced fluorescence microscopy to examine virus-antibody interactions. We are developing both low-resolution high throughput methods to quantify infection and high-resolution/super-resolution approaches to quantify the interactions between antibodies and individual virus particles. 

 
We use our ImageJ plugin Infection Counter to quantify HCV infection.
