This originally started out as an alcian blue stain of rat intestines taken on an inverted microscope. This alcian blue stains polysaccharides blue. The microvilli in the intestine looked so interesting that I edited it to look like a field of flowers.

Pollen grains taken on Zeiss Aviovert 200M at 40x

Jumping reindeer. Actin cytoskeletal network in the mouse fibroblast cell line NIH3T3 grown on a soft substrate. AlexaFluor-488 conjugated phalloidin (Invitrogen) was used to detect actin and DAPI was used to detect nuclei. Imaging was done using a Zeiss Axiovert inverted fluorescence microscope at 400X magnification.

C2C12 differentiated myotubes growing on a piranha cleaned glass microscope slide coated with (3-aminopropyl)-trimethoxysilane (APTMS). A custom designed SlideDish was used to grow the cells on the aminosilane self-assembled monolayer (SAM). The image was taken with a Leica fluorescent microscope (Rolle Scope): phase contrast, scale bar = 100 μm.

Recrystallized benzophenone in acetone.   "The image was taken with a Nikon D70 digital camera using ambient light."

Pig heart valve cells in fibrin gel.         
Image taken using Leica SP5 Point Scanning Confocal/DMI6000.

"Cell 'n Gel"
Human lung fibroblast cultured on a fibrin gel to determine how far a cell can "feel" through the fibrous extracellular matrix of our bodies. Leica confocal microscope in standard fluorescence mode (cell) and in confocal reflectance mode (fibers), 20x. Image captured by Mathilda Rudnicki, MS WPI 2012.

Self-Assembled Phospholipid Vesicles                 
The image is of lipid vesicles at 100x magnification. I used a cross-polarizing microscope and split the cross-polarized image (the red side) with the non-polarized image.

AFM image of a fixed red blood cell

Title: P. patens epi-fluorescence.  An image of growing Physcomitrella patens (moss) cells, dyed with calcofluor and propidium iodide to distinguish the cell walls. The image was taken using epi-fluorescence at an

Drosophila melanogaster. Species used in the Duffy lab to study the unique protein expression of Kekkon-6. Illustration done digitally in Photoshop.
