Sutured wound. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a suture in a skin wound five days after the injury occurred. There is dried blood (red) around the wound. Sutures help with healing by bringing the two sides of a wound together. They also minimise scarring. Magnification: x25 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
