Caption: Asthma drug. Coloured Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) of salbutamol sulphate crystals (yellow) on a lactose crystal (grey). Salbutamol is a bronchodilator drug used to relieve the symptoms of breathlessness in asthma, bronchitis and allergy sufferers. The drug is breathed in through a ventilator, carried on the lactose-sugar crystals as seen. Salbutamol widens the airways in the lungs (the bronchioles) by relaxing the muscles of each bronchiole. Because salbutamol also relaxes the muscles of the wall in the uterus, it is also occasionally used in the prevention of premature labour. Magnification: x700 at 6x7cm size.
