Finger Nail Nail base. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the base of a finger nail. The nail (grey) is composed of a hard translucent form of the protein keratin. The top layer of the skin is composed of dead keratinised cells that are continuously sloughed off and replaced with new cells from below. Magnification: x30 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.

SEM of follicle or eyelash mites (grey, Demodex folliculorum) protruding from a dissected human hair follicle. These harmless parasites infest hair follicles around the eyelids, nose and in the ear canals of humans. One follicle may contain up to 25 growing mites. They feed on oily secretions from the skin's sebaceous glands and dead skin cells. ©Andrew Syred/Science Source #scienceimages #micrograph
