PLGA Microsphere

PLGA (poly lactic-co-glycolic acid) is a biodegradable and biocompatible copolymer that is widely used in the pharmaceutical industry as a drug delivery vehicle.PLGA microspheres were attached to a SEM stub with a carbon adhesive disc and being transferred using a squirrel hair brush. Excess sample was removed with a gentle spray of compressed air and then placed into the FEI Quanta FEG 200 for imaging. To enhance surface morphology of the spheres, a low accelerating voltage of 2KV was selected to be the optimum for this kind of sample with a chamber pressure of 180 Pascal’s. A digital image was captured, imported into photoshop and coloured by Steve Gschmeissner.

Nanoplankton Calcareous Nannoplankton

The rainbow creatures shown here are a species called calcareous nannoplankton. In the past as ocean acidity increased, the skeletons of some species became malformed, other species shrank in size, and others died out altogether. The intelligent design behind the species portrayed here is that it modifies and protects itself with a calcium shell during periods of high CO2 atmospheric content that lead to ocean acidification. Each creature is approximately 2 microns.
