Caption: Red blood cells. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of red blood cells (erythrocytes) in various different orientations. Red blood cells are biconcave, giving them a large surface area for gas exchange, and highly elastic, enabling them to pass through narrow capillary vessels. They have no nucleus, but their interior is packed with haemoglobin. Haemoglobin is a red iron-containing pigment that enables these cells to carry oxygen to body tissues and to transport waste carbon dioxide back to the lungs. Magnification: x3900 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
