Caption: Skin. Light micrograph of a section through the skin from a finger. The outermost layer is the epidermis (upper frame). It consists of a layer of dead, keratinised cells which are continuously shed and replaced by cells from the layer below it (dark purple). Beneath this layer is the dermis (pink) which contains elastic connective tissue. It also contains blood vessels, nerves and sweat glands. Sweat glands are tubular, unbranched coiled glands. One is seen sectioned at lower right (pink, rounded). The white areas at bottom are part of the fatty subcutaneous layer. Magnification: x30 at 6x7cm size.
