Figure 2

(a) shows the phase-contrast micrographs of confluent hDMSCs cell line at passage 12. The cultures seem to be healthy and growing well. (b) represents the light microscope image of Giemsa stained hDMSCs. The cells have a distinct and round nucleus with slight cytoplasmic granules. (c) shows the light microscope images of hDMSCs stained with Oil Red O stain wherein the red stain was taken up by the oil secretions of the cell and not by the cell itself.
