Mon Dieu, So how did you photograph these Art. This is wonderful cellular biology.
I thought you would like these Amelia. This one is a scanning electron micrograph SEM of lymphocytes that were crawling around in tissue culture immediately before I fixed them. The fixative was exactly the same temperature as the cells so fixation preserved the appearance of movement the same way as a photograph preserves movement. Then, I tilted the specimen before using the SEM to "photograph" it. This creates an appearance of depth of field which otherwise is absent when electrons are what you are seeing. -Art
Are you still working with things like this?
It's amazing how things change Art. And in a comparatively short time too. I've had a look at the link, very interesting.
I have upgraded my web site to a new domain so the link, 2-Photon Intravital Microscopy, is now at a new URL. -Art
Very interesting ArtnScience, to see this one.
I'm working on the laboratory of a Hospital, so I have to look in a microcope too. But not in an electron microscope. We are differentiating leucocyten etc. and also marrow punctates.
Chris10, Thanks for replying and letting me know you use a microscope. Although I am a Pathologist, I have spent most of my time studying lymphocytes and the immune system. The link in my reply to Amelia above your reply to me will take you to one of the pages of my Art & Science website. Or, you can just browse it from the front by clicking on this LINK. I have many good friends who are Dutch Scientists in Groningen, Amsterdam, Utrecht etc. Best regards. -Art
