Here is one of the images that we took using a Leica SP8 confocal microscope this week in the lab. It is a 3D image of a HeLa cell that has completely stuffed up mitosis (undergone mitotic catastrophe). It has separated whole chromosomes randomly into 2 daughter cells instead of separating the two identical chromatids in […]Read More Cell Image of the Week – Mitotic Catastrophe
