25 Amazing Electron Microscope Images

All the common objects are kinda boring when you look at them, but the situation changes when an awesome Electron Microscope comes in the scene. I mean, take a look at the Salt and pepper image. Isn’t it cool? Is like you’re eating massive stones and pieces of wood. Next, check out the 50x zoom of human eyelash hairs image. Oh my god, we have some ugly eyelashes! Anyway, in this article you can see 25 amazing super zoomed images that look from another planet.

Blood clot crystals

Blood clot crystals. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of crystals of albumin from a blood clot. Albumin is the most abundant protein in the blood plasma. When the skin is cut, small blood vessels are ruptured, releasing blood. Some proteins in the blood plasma (such as albumin) harden in the air to form crystals (pink) over the wound.  Credit: STEVE GSCHMEISSNER/SCIENCE PHOTO LIBRARY

Ruptured capillary

Ruptured capillary. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a red blood cell squeezing out of a torn capillary. A capillary is the smallest type of blood vessel, often only just large enough for red blood cells to pass through. Red blood cells (erythrocytes) are biconcave, disc-shaped cells that transport oxygen from the lungs to body cells. Credit: STEVE GSCHMEISSNER/SCIENCE PHOTO LIBRARY

Football shirt material

Football shirt material, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). This material has been designed to let the skin breathe. Magnification: x40 when printed at 10 centimetres wide. Credit: EYE OF SCIENCE/SCIENCE PHOTO LIBRARY

Ear wax secretion

Ear wax secretion. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of ear wax, or cerumen, being secreted by a gland in the ear canal. Ear wax helps to clean and lubricate the ear canal and prevent the entry of bacteria, water and foreign objects. Magnification: x4000 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.

Instant coffee granule

Instant coffee granule, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). Instant coffee is a dried aqueous solution of roasted coffee. The drying process produces hollow particles of low density by either spray-drying or freeze-drying. Both processes avoid nutritional and functional damage and the resulting beverage usually contains 400 grams of coffee per litre. Magnification x26 at 10cm wide.

Sutured wound

Enteric coated drug delivery capsule

Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of an open drug delivery capsule (blue), showing the drug particles (orange) inside. The outer layer (blue) has an enteric coating that resists being digested by the stomach. When it reaches the small intestine the coating breaks down and releases the drug particles inside. This allows the drug to be delivered to the correct part of the intestine. Microparticle delivery systems such as this are used to treat conditions such as Crohn’s disease.
