ANIMATION

The Inner Life of the Cell

Share this animation:

In 2006, Harvard University teamed up with XVIVO to develop an animation that would take their cellular biology students on a journey through the microscopic world of a cell.

The Inner Life of the Cell follows a white blood cell’s movement along the endothelium and its response to an external stimulus — a process known as leukocyte extravasation. This widely-acclaimed piece is the first in a series of animations XVIVO has created for Harvard’s BioVisions.

The second installment, titled Powering the Cell: Mitochondria, follows the mechanism of ATP production along the inner mitochondrial membrane.

In 2013, we released The Inner Life of the Cell: Protein Packing, which illustrates the crowded molecular environment present in cells.

Narrated versions are available on the BioVisions website.

While translating verbal concepts and still photographs into persuasive animation that meets the clients expectations can be a difficult process, the XVIVO staff met the challenge. The client felt the animation was so well done, they came back and asked for additional still frames so their sales force could also use them in promoting the Synergy system.
