Caption: Skeletal muscle. Light micrograph of a section of skeletal muscle showing its branching capillary network. Skeletal muscle, also known as striated muscle, makes up the bulk of the body's musculature. It is responsible for the voluntary movement of the bones. It is highly vascular, having an extensively branched network of capillary blood vessels (mid brown), which provide a large surface area for the exchange of gases and nutrients. Prepared using a Bielschowsky stain. Magnification: x80 at 5x7cm size. x40 at 35mm.
