Below are some examples of images acquired on microscope systems at AMCF.
Scanning electron microscopy image of hepatic sinusoids of a C57BL6 mouse, approximately 4 months old. Liver Sinusoidal Endothelial Cells (LSECs) are covered in multiple fenestrations (arrows) arranged into sieve plates (SP, dotted line circles) distributed over the whole sinusoid. SD, space of Disse; HC, hepatocytes. (Courtesy of Karen K. Sørensen, Vascular Biology Research Group). ZEISS Sigma
