Mouse Eyeball Cells
Researchers stained ultra-thin slices of a mouse’s eye to create this first-place photography winner.
The stain was made of three antibodies that bind to three different molecules present in all cells, but in differing concentrations. Assigning red, blue and green to each antibody allowed the creators to depict more than 70 different cell types in the organ.
