Human primary mammary epithelial cell in culture (non-carcinoma), coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). Epithelia cells are cells that line hollow organs or glands and the outer surface of the body. They help to protect or enclose organs. Most produce mucus or other secretions. Certain types of epithelial cells have tiny hairs called cilia, which help remove foreign substances. Epithelial cells are arranged in single, or multiple layers, depending on the organ and location. Magnification: x340 when shortest axis printed at 25 millimetres.
