In my PhD I study the interaction of nanoparticles with cultured cells. This SEM picture shows HeLa cells that were treated with silica nanoparticles. It is fascinating to see how the particles arrange in bulks on top of the cells. In this sample even the tiny filopodia of the cells are nicely preserved.
