Thank you

fuckyeahforensics:
Luminol is used by forensic investigators to detect trace amounts of blood left at crime scenes as it reacts with iron found in hemoglobin. It is used by biologists in cellular assays for the detection of copper, iron, and cyanides, in addition to the detection of specific proteins by Western Blot.
For analysis of an area, luminol can be sprayed evenly across the area, and trace amounts of an activating oxidant will cause the luminol to emit a blue glow that can be seen in a darkened room. The glow lasts for about 30 seconds, but the effect can be documented by a long-exposure photograph. It is important that the spraying be evenly applied to avoid creating a slanted, or biased impression, such as blood traces appearing to be more concentrated in areas which received more spray. The intensity of the glow does not indicate the original amount present, but only the distribution of trace amounts of substances left in the area.

A young man committed suicide by decapitation with a tape saw used to cut metal.
You can observe a clean, regular cut affecting the oropharynx up to the base of the tongue, with complete spinal cord section, half of the cerebellum and both occipital lobes, with greater involvement of the right lobe.

Fetal specimen at the Vrolik Museum, Netherlands. The Vrolik Museum started with the private collection of embryos and anatomical abnormalities, put together by the Gerardus Vrolik. The museum houses an extensive medical collection of pathological specimens, anomalous embryos, odd skulls and bones and is used today by the Faculty of Medicine students of the University of Amsterdam.

Mia Jane-Harris creates absolutely stunning close-up photographs of medical specimens of human cadavers in her series “Your Corpse is Beautiful” and shows us just how beautiful death can be.

humandeaths:

Brain surrounded by pus (the yellow-greyish coat around the brain, under the dura lifted by the forceps), the result of bacterial meningitis. A brain autopsy demonstrating signs of meningitis. The forceps (center) are retracting the dura mater (white). Underneath the dura mater are the leptomeninges, which appear to be edematous and have multiple small hemorrhagic foci (red).
