2016 FEI Image Contest Monthly Winners: Congratulations to Dr. Rita Serda: 2016 Winner of Macrophage Tunneling Nanotubes Image
September 30, 2016
Category: DualBeam Macrophage Tunneling Nanotubes Courtesy of Dr. Rita Serda Mouse macrophages communicate through bridges known as tunneling nanotubes. The nanotubes are active sites involved in endocytosis of nano particles and transport of nanoparticles between cells. This image was taken at a 52 degree tilt and the nanoparticles were false-colored red. Image Details Magnification: 25,000 Sample: mouse macrophages Detector: SE Voltage: 30 kV Horizontal Field Width: 15 um WorkingDistance: 10 Spot: 7.0 Taken by Quanta 3D Read More...
