Caption: Osteoblast bone cell. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of an osteoblast (centre) in bone tissue. Osteoblasts are primarily found in regions of new bone growth. They produce and secrete osteoid, a matrix of new bone tissue composed of collagen fibrils and other structural proteins. As soon as osteoid is formed, calcium salts crystallise inside it to form hard, mineralised bone. Magnification: x8000 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
