Under the Scope

Researchers at the Delaware Biotechnology Institute's Bio-Imaging Center use state-of-the-art microscopes to capture magnified digital images of specimens, from the millimeter to nanometer (one billionth of a meter) scales.

When magnified and colored, the results are scientifically important and artistically impressive!  A sampling of some of these extraordinary images is currently on exhibit at DMNH.
