Drug research using insects. Researcher using a pipetting machine to collect samples from wells containing insect extracts with fungal or bacterial colonies. The extracts are being tested to see if they have fungicidal or antibacterial properties. It is hoped that analysing these extracts will lead to new drug compounds. Photographed in Petit-Saut, French Guiana. For an image showing how the insect extracts were obtained, see G352/368.
