French term or phrase: cellules SIRC à confluence
In a description of materials for an eye tolerance test for a cosmetic substance, "1 plaque de x puits tapissés de cellules S.I.R.C. à confluence". I'm aware it's a SIRC cell line, but am not sure what "à confluence" indicates here. Any ideas? TIA.

SIRC cells (which) have reached/(grown to) confluence
Explanation:
I think it means that the cells have reached confluence.

An example:
Cells were isolated by EDTA treatment and cultured to confluence.
...
Antibody Ki67 and ZO-1 tested either before or after cultured cells reached confluence to indicate cell proliferation and cell-cell contact formation.
