Description: Caption:
Magnified 7766X, this scanning electron microscopic (SEM) image depicted a number of red blood cells (RBCs) found enmeshed in a fibrinous matrix on the luminal surface of an indwelling vascular catheter. In this instance, the indwelling catheter was a tube that was left in place creating a patent portal directly into a blood vessel. Some of the erythrocytes were grouped in a stack, known as a rouleaux formation. See PHIL 7318 for a black and white version of this SEM.
