This is a microscopic section of colon tirssue. In the mucosa, there are long crypts which contain goblet cells. Beneath that layer, there is muscularis mucosae, submucosa, circular muscle, longtitudicnal muscle, and serosa.

XVIVO really came through for us when we were putting together animations for the Health gallery of the Connecticut Science Center. The beating heart is gorgeous! They are true experts and we really enjoyed collaborating with them.
