Pseudomonas Aeruginosa Bacterial invasion

The in vivo interaction between a wild type P. aeruginosa biofilm, on a silicone implant, and the responding polymorphonuclear leukocytes. SEM visualization depicts the interaction at day 1 post insertion of the implant in peritoneal cavity of a mouse. The leukocytes (yellow) are killed by the bacteria (cyan), as seen from their damaged appearance, with obvious cavities in the membrane, after contact with the WT biofilm.

Trabecular Rete of Human Oculus

The trabecular rete of human oculus consists of crossing collagen fibers with cells and extracellular matrix on the surface. Also on the surface of the trabeculae we can see round granules (not bacteria) of organic origin. The use of SEM in ophthalmologic microsurgery allows to evaluate the quality of surgical technique. These studies were conducted jointly with Lyubimova T.S. from Scientific Technical Complex “Microsurgery of oculus”.

ESEM - Calcium sulfphate dihydrate.

The hydration of calcium sulphate hemihydrate (CaSO4.0,5H2O) leads to gypsum (calcium sulphate dihydrate – CaSO4.2H2O). It is a highly exothermic reaction which occurs by a dissolution/reprecipitation mechanism: when the hemihydrate is mixed with water, a fraction of it dissolves to give a saturated solution with respect to Ca2+ and SO4 2- ions, which is supersaturated with respect to calcium sulfphate dihydrate leading to nucleation and crystal growth. ESEM images taken from the hemihydrate hydration process. One can follow water adsorption to the hemihydrate at a 100% RH and the resulting needle-like crystals which result after water elimination.
