We describe what we do as “visualizing the invisible. Making the abstract clear.”
Most of our work is on the cellular level, but we’ve noticed an increased interest in illustrations on a molecular level.
Changing magnification level changes the elements in a graphic.
Cellular level visual: includes cells on gut wall covered by finger-like projections (villi) and microvilli on cells’ villi surface.
Molecular level visual: close up of Brush Borders on Microvilli that cover one cell’s surface. Villi not shown.
Our first 3D sample of the gut biome –molecular level, depicting one cell in an out-of-balance gut microbiome due to food poisoning. Unchecked, bacterium Clostridium perfingens damages microvilli the cell’s walls and causes contents to leak.
