Human Life Research on ISS Russian Segment

Intercellular Interaction Experiment


Objective:

Assessment of cytotoxic activity of isolated human blood lymphocytes during the combined cultivation with cell culture K-562 under microgravity conditions.

Tasks:

To conduct the process of intercellular interaction and return of the findings to Earth.

Science Hardware
Used:

  • 'Fibroplast' stowage;
  • Thermostatically controlled container 'Akvarius'
    for conducting the cultivation process

Complex of Maintenance
and support aids:

  • Glove box
  • Container KV-03
    for returning to Earth

Flight Equipment Used:

  • Refrigerator 'Cryogem-03';

Experiment Results:

  • Insert 'Filters' with the culture of cellular suspension;
  • Containing the intercellular interaction products.

Expected Results:

The research conducted allows to develop the methods for analyzing immunity system condition directly onboard the orbital space station.
