Coated Seeds: Soy | As far back as antiquity, people used all kinds of remedies, such as leek juice, ash and onion broth, to protect their precious seeds from fungal infestation and insect damage. Today, farmers use seed treatments such as Standak®

The outside of a treated soybean: the seed treatment forms a protective film – approximately one tenth the thickness of a human hair – around the seed.

The science behind hearing loss  The cochlea in our inner ear contains 15,000 tiny, hair-like structures called “stereocilia”, or hair cells. There are two types: auditory and vestibular, responsible for hearing and balance respectively. Auditory hair cells function by bending in response to sound, and their movements are transmitted as electrical signals to the brain, which interprets them as sound. When these hair cells are damaged or killed, it can cause permanent hearing loss—

Nerve bundle. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a freeze-fractured section through a bundle of myelinated nerve fibres. Myelin sheaths (yellow) can be seen surrounding the axons (blue). Perineurium (connective tissue, pink) surrounds the nerve bundle while endoneurium divides the individual fibres.

Migrating cancer cell. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a cultured cancer cell moving (metastasising) through a hole in a support film. Numerous pseudopodia (arm-like), fillipodia (thread-like) and surface blebs (lumps) can be seen. These features are characteristic of highly mobile cells, and enable cancerous cells to spread rapidly around the body, and invade other organs and tissues (metastasis). #anatomy #microscope #microscopic #medicine #medical #human

Daisy pollen (Bellis perennis)  Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of pollen grains of a common Daisy (Bellis perennis). The outer wall (exine) has many small spiky projections. These get caught in the body hairs of insects. The insects then fly to other flowers to feed and so pollen is transferred. Pollen contains the male reproductive cells of a plant. When the pollen grain, containing the male gametes, lands on the stigma of a flower, it germinates.

Adipose cells or adipocytes are specialized connective tissue for the storage of fat. The large adipocytes are held in place by strands of collagen fibers and a fine network of reticular fibers. A large capillary is seen near the cell surface. SEM  #anatomy #medical #medicine #microscopic #mircoscope #picture #photo #photograph #fat #cell #cells #vessels #health
