• Top micrographs Nikon Small World 2012
A few days ago it was announced the winners of the 37th annual competition photomicrography Nikon Small World Photomicrography Competition under the patronage of the Japanese company Nikon. Participation in the contest usually takes researchers photographed their studies. Of the hundreds of works of fiction jury selected the 20 best.
20th place. Bright Field micrograph three embryos black Molos (species of bats) at progressive stages of development. A little later, their wings begin to lengthen and ears - grow bigger.
19th place. Cell lineage (primordia), representing the earliest stage of flower development. The photo was taken with illumination technique Kirlian.
8th place. Brightfield micrograph of particles of various forms of coral sand. 100-fold magnification.
17th place. Stinging nettle leaf tip on. Micrograph taken with transmitted light technique. 100-fold magnification.
16th place. The cut shell fossil turitelly containing ancient freshwater snails and ostracods. 7-fold increase.
15th place. Confocal image of the legs of a ladybird. 10-fold increase.
14th place. Pink, orange and yellow colors abound on pestle fat Adenium (desert rose). Photo giperfokusirovki executed in the art. 10-fold increase.
13th place. Type of protozoa known as Sonder. These ciliates love to feast on cyanobacteria and diatoms. 400-fold increase.
12 place. Confocal fluorescence image and lymphatic endothelial cells and fibroblasts. 200-fold increase.
11 place. Confocal image portion bowel fruit fly larvae, comprising markers signaling activity Notch (green), cytoskeleton (red) and nuclei (blue). 25-fold increase.
10 place. Stereomicroscopical and dark-field image zmeehvostki. 8-fold increase.
9th place. Ant carrying a larva. The photo was taken giperfokusirovki appliances and reflected light. 5-fold increase.
8 place. Photomicrograph larvae plevrobrahii, made in the technique of differential-interference contrast. 500-fold increase.
7th place. Confocal image of the eye of the fruit fly. 60-fold increase.
6 place. COSMAR (seaweed) near Leaf sfagnida (moss) in polarized light. 100-fold magnification.
5 th place. Micrograph of tiny spheres of a mineral from the mine cacoxenite La Paloma, made in the technique of the transmitted light. 18-fold increase.
4th place. Confocal image of the visual system of the fruit fly pupa stage of development. The retina is a golden color, the photoreceptors axons - blue, brain tissue - green. A 1500-fold increase.
3 rd place. Human bone cancer. Actin fibers are shown in purple, mitochondria - yellow, DNA - blue. 63-fold image.
2 nd place. Photomicrograph newborn-lynx spiders made in the technique of the reflected beam, fiber optics and giperfokusirovki. 6-fold increase.
1 place. Confocal image of the blood-brain barrier in the zebrafish embryo. Photo is notable because it is the first image of the blood-brain barrier of a living being. 20-fold increase.
