A 250nm pre-solar grain was isolated from the substrate using FEI Quanta 3D-FEG. The grain is seen on top of the center pillar right under the Pt cap. The process is extremely delicate and precise, thanks to the stability of this FIB system. The sample is from a meteorite somewhere from outer space and the pre-solar grain was first identified in it by its unique isotopic signature.

The glomerular basement membrane (GBM) of the kidney is the basal lamina layer of the glomerulus. The glomerular capillary endothelial cells, the GBM and the filtration slits between the podocytes perform the filtration function of the glomerulus, separating the blood in the capillaries from the filtrate that forms in Bowman's capsule. The GBM is a fusion of the endothelial cell and podocyte basal laminas.
