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”.

A billion year old microfossils

Well preserved ~1 billionw year old Organic microfossils were found at Bitter Springs Formation of Australia. The FIB was used at NASA-JSC Labs. to prepare ultra-thin cross sections and then HRTEM and STXM/XANES analyses were performed.Together these analyses of FIBed organic microfossils from Early Earth materials open up a new line of research where we can more specifically characterize remnants of early life.  Data from these studies would provide insight into recognizing fragmentary organic remains from living systems from either the early Earth or extraterrestrial bodies. In the picture, the cross section of filamentous microfossils are visible.

Zinc crystals

Zinc crystals that have been adsorbed on the surface of an alginate gel after being subjected to a process of wastewater treatment. An important field of application of the alginates gels is the protection of the environment: alginate gels are used as adsorbents for the removal of heavy metals such as cadmium, zinc, lead, chromium and mercury in wastewater.

Sildenafil Crystals

Sildenafil is the active ingredient in Viagra tablets.Sildenafil was re crystallised in 10% alcohol and allowed to air dry, then adhered onto a SEM stub using double sided carbon adhesive discs, prior to viewing the sample was gold coated in an Emitech K550 Sputter Coater for 2 minutes at 20mA. The coated sample was then transferred into a FEI XL30 Scanning Electron Microscope and imaged at 10KV using a high tilt angle. High definition digital images were captured and imported into Photoshop for enhancing and colouring.
