Olympus BioScapes Digital Imaging Competition 2012

1st Place Ralph Grimm Jimboomba, Queensland, Australia Specimen: Colonial rotifers showing eyespots and corona, magnification 200x - 500x. Technique: Differential interference contrast Microscope images forge an extraordinary bond between science and art, said Hidenao Tsuchiya, Olympus America's Vice President and General Manager for the Scientific Equipment Group. We founded this competition to focus on the fascinating stories coming out of today's life science research laboratories. The thousands of images that people have shared with the competition over the years reflect some of the most exciting work going on in research today – work that can help shed light on the living universe and ultimately save lives. We look at BioScapes and these beautiful images as sources of education and inspiration to us and the world
