Caption

Red blood cells (red) in a blood vessel, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). Red blood cells (erythrocytes) are packed with haemoglobin, a red iron-containing pigment that has an oxygen-carrying capacity. The main function of red blood cells is to distribute oxygen to body tissues and to carry waste carbon dioxide back to the lungs.
