SEM image (9,379x magnification) of a Zebrafish neuromast taken near the ear. Katie Kindt false-colored the image taken by Greg Baty.

Katie’s main interest in taking the SEM image was to examine the stereocilia and correlate the result with confocal studies that were performed while the zebrafish was alive. Katie and Gabe Finch at OHSU had a difficult time preparing the fish for SEM, due to the variability in a rapidly growing fish that is three days old. It took an interdisciplinary team effort to produce an image of this quality on a high vacuum XL30 Sirion.
