Pancreas, rat - photomicrograph

This is a photomicrograph of a sliced rat beta cell that has been processed with the modified NASA imaging technology. Insulin granules are the dark black spots surrounded by a white area called a halo. Large cells have hundreds of insulin granules. The colored borders around the granules are labels added to identify them and classify how they appear.
