A scanning electron microscopic image of HIV. The glycoprotein complex on its surface enables the virus to attach to and fuse with target cells to initiate the infectious cycle.
This is an image of a piece of dentine acquired using a scanning electron microscope. It shows the dentinal tubules viewed after demineralization using etching with 37% phosphoric acid for 15 seconds and 10% sodium hypochlorite for 1 minute. The colors were obtained by mixing the signals of secondary and backscattered electrons. The mixing is performed using the software FEI Company.

Pedicellaria : appendage of sea urchin, ( genus sperosoma : coated / calcified : 100 x magnification ). Pedicellariae are positioned on moveable stalks and are distributed between the spines and tube-feet of sea-urchins. Some of the collagen in the pedicellaria is of the “catch” type, that is, it is at one moment stiff and supportive and, at the next, soft and flexible.
