Fluorescent Microscopy

We reveal the human body as seen using fluorescence microscopy. This technique uses fluorescent dyes to highlight specific proteins in the body. Each dye binds to one protein, and glows a particular colour when illuminated under the microscope.

Human Foetal Development Animations

From an embryo to a foetus, the human foetal gestation period is typically around 40 weeks after the last period or 38 weeks after fertilisation (conception). This set of clips shows each of the development over each of the individual weeks. Clip K004/2561 shows the development from week 4 through to week 40.
