Caption: Blood vessels. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a resin cast of blood vessels in the kidney. This network of vessels infiltrates the tissue, supplying it with blood. Gases and nutrients are exchanged between the blood and surrounding tissue through the permeable walls of capillaries, the smallest blood vessels. The kidneys are responsible for the selective removal of nitrogenous waste from the blood. This cast was made by injecting resin into the blood vessels. The surrounding tissues were then chemically digested. Magnification: x30 at 6x7cm size.
