Watch a Neutrophil chase a bacteria….

16-mm movie made in the 1950s by the late David Rogers at Vanderbilt University. Find the link here.

Neutrophils are a subgroup of white blood cells (leukocytes) and are the largest group ‘first responders’ when fighting infection. Bacteria are the main infectious organisms that they fight.

So this is happening, all the time and right now.

Pretty darn cool.
