Human airway epithelial cilia imaged following long term culture of clinical nasal scrapes (Culture technique described by Fulcher et al. Well-differentiated human airway epithelial cell cultures. Methods in Molecular Medicine 107: 183-206, 2005.).
The movie was collected at 200 fps using a high-speed Phantom v4.2 camera (Vision Research, NJ), connected to a Leica DMIRE2 inverted microscope with 100x oil immersion objective. Movie playback has been slowed to 50 fps.
