Unusual CNRS visits

4th édition

CNRS is opening the doors of its laboratories, observatories, scientific platforms and research sites in France. From 6 to 16 October 2023, during the Fête de la science, the Unusual Visits will once again enable more than 1,000 people to plunge into the heart of research and discover exceptional facilities or experiments, face-to-face with scientists.

Description of visit

Immerse yourself in the day-to-day life of a research laboratory. To achieve this goal, you’ll have to roll up your sleeves, dress up as a researcher and carry out experiments.

The CRIBL laboratory studies the normal and pathological development of a particular cell of the immune system: the B lymphocyte. It studies it from every angle.

After getting to know the laboratory and the B lymphocyte, you will carry out some molecular and cellular biology experiments:

  • Observation and handling of cells in suspension under a microbiological safety cabinet (PSM type 2)
  • Handling cell pellets
  • Handling the culture supernatant to measure the quantity of immunoglobulins. The participants carry out the final phase of an ELISA (revelation) prepared before the visit and the plate reading.
  • 3D visualisation of cells using a confocal microscope
