Image Description:   This wonderfully detailed image shows respirocytes and red blood cells flowing through a blood vessel, most likely a small artery. In the foreground at left, we see a closeup of the respirocyte surface even including the sensor apertures and the individual rotating disks (containing active binding sites) comprising each of the thousands of sorting rotors. At lower right, we see another nearby respirocyte with its pumping station geometry and polar barcodes clearly visible.
