Activated platelets, SEM Featured Print

Activated platelets, SEM

Activated platelets. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of activated platelets attached to surgical gauze. Platelets are tiny blood cells that help the body form clots to stop bleeding. If a blood vessels gets damaged, it sends out signals that are picked up by platelets. The platelets then rush to the site of damage and form a plug, or clot, to repair the damage. The process of spreading across the surface of a damaged blood vessel to stop bleeding is called adhesion. This is because when platelets get to the site of the injury, they grow sticky tentacles that help them adhere. They also send out chemical signals to attract more platelets to pile onto the clot in a process called aggregation. Magnification: x7000 at 10cm wide

Leek Show winners Featured Print

Leek Show winners

Two prize winners at a Leek Show displaying their impressive vegetables alongside a couple of equally impressive mantel clocks, presumably their prizes. The North East tradition of growing leeks and other large vegetables has its roots in the region's mining heritage, when it offered pitmen a welcome hobby out in the fresh air. In recent years, there has been a decline in leek shows, once a vibrant part of North Eastern heritage and community. Date: c.1910

Ripe cashew nut Featured Print

Ripe cashew nut

Ripe cashew nut. Image 2 of 2. Native to South America, the cashew (Anacardium occidentale) is now widely cultivated throughout the tropics. Cashew trees produce a fruit, known as an apple (centre), and a nut (lower centre). The nut forms before the fruit swells and ripens, which takes two months. Once harvested, the fruit is often discarded in favour of the nut, although it can be used to make jellies, jams and juice. The nut must be removed from its shell with care, as the shell contains an allergen that can cause dermatitis. Cashew nuts are used in a variety of sweet and savoury recipes. Photographed in Grenada. See B790/237 for an unripe cashew nut
