I am a little paranoid and need help answering my question about how dangerous HeLa cells are.
Today I was lysing my HeLa cells using 27G syringe, I stabbed myself on the needle while doing my last sample, it was a sample where there was no any infection or any treatment, simply just HeLa cells in 20mM HEPES buffer.
Should I be worried? Considering HeLa cells do carry some of HPV, but I guess not the virus particle and I guess injecting just from the needle should no be a problem but I am so worried.
Please share your opinions.
Thanks a lot!
