About this work


Two capillaries in the glomerulus of the kidney. One contains red blood cells and the other a white blood cell. Between the capillaries is a podocyte. These cells cover the glomerular capillaries with their multiple processes forming the visceral layer of Bowman's capsule. The horizontal field width of the sample is 10.3 micrometres.
