A collection of microscopy images taken by students in the Microscopy course (BIOL448C/BOTA546B) using light/fluorescence, confocal and electron microscopy.
A transmission electron micrograph of the aerosol particles from a burner. Aerosols are particles of liquid or solid suspended in a gas that can affect human health and climate. Dr. Alberto Baldelli, a postdoctoral fellow, works with Dr. Steve Rogak, Department of Mechanical Engineering. He uses Hitachi H7600 TEM and FEI Tecnai TEM for Electron […]
Light microscopy images of stained-transverse sections of the gills from juvenile Arapaima (Arapaima gigas) at different developmental stages. This fish, native to the Amazon River, develops a modified swim-bladder to transition from water to obligatory air-breathing as a response to hypoxic conditions during the dry season. Dr. Andrea Frommel, a postdoctoral fellow with Dr. Colin Brauner, […]
Field-emission (FE) scanning electron and transmission electron micrographs of three types of cellulose, the pulp fiber produced from Western Canada softwood fiber species (FESEM), cellulose nanocrystals (TEM), bacterial cellulose (FESEM)(left to right). Dr. Laleh Solhi, a postdoctoral fellow, with Dr. Harry Brumer, Michael Smith Laboratories, uses Hitachi S4700 SEM and Hitachi H7600 TEM to study […]
