Coloured SEM of red blood cells forming a clot

Blood clot. Coloured Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) showing the formation of a blood clot. Red blood cells (erythrocytes) are seen trapped by a sheet of protein material made of hundreds of tiny fibrin threads (blue). Fibrin is an insoluble protein which is essential in the arrest of bleeding. As the blood cells become trapped they will begin to lose their normal rounded shape. Blood clots form to repair blood vessels damaged by injury or disease. Abnormal clotting in blood vessels, as occurs in a thrombus in intact arteries and veins, is the principal cause of heart attack and stroke. Magnification: x2, 740 at 6x7cm size

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the intricate formation of a blood clot, as seen through a colored scanning electron microscope (SEM). The image reveals red blood cells (erythrocytes) intricately trapped within a sheet of protein material composed of countless tiny fibrin threads, depicted in striking blue. Fibrin, an insoluble protein crucial for halting bleeding, plays a vital role in the creation of these clots. As the red blood cells become ensnared by the fibrin network, they gradually lose their characteristic rounded shape. Blood clots serve as natural repair mechanisms for damaged blood vessels caused by injuries or diseases. However, abnormal clotting within intact arteries and veins can lead to severe health complications such as heart attacks and strokes. This microscopic snapshot offers valuable insight into this physiological process that has significant implications for human anatomy. Magnified at an astonishing x2,740 and printed on a 6x7cm surface area, this photograph captures every minute detail with astounding clarity. It serves as a testament to the power of scientific imaging techniques in unraveling complex biological phenomena. This remarkable image is part of Science Photo Library's extensive collection featuring various subjects related to processes occurring within our bodies.
