Electron microscopy has long been used as a technique to capture the details of cellular structures at a very micro level. However, until now, the technique was used only to capture a small part of an organism. Now, researchers have been able to apply the technique to capture ultra-high-resolution image of the entire zebrafish embryo.


The researches took the technique of electron microscopy one step further to create this image. The technique that they used is being called ‘virtual nanoscopy.’ In the course of creating this image, the researchers took 26,000 unique images which were then consolidated into a single 281-gigapixel image. This image features a whopping 16 million pixels per inch!

The beauty of this image is that for the first time, you can zoom in to the cellular structure at incredibly micro levels while at the same time, being able to see the whole embryo. In a way, it feels like a huge planet into which you can zoom in and see the details, quite like Google Earth.

The research team that created this image has been working on it for quite some time. They submitted their research in January this year and were able to come out with the complete image just now. The virtual nanoscopy technique may turn out to be a break-through for biologists since it can allow them to view cellular structures in great detail now. You can give a look to this stunning image over here.
