Welcome to the Histology Image Competition 2016!

Merck Millipore and Sigma-Aldrich have joined forces to solve the toughest problems in life science, so you can focus on advancing your research.  

Merck’s new brand is inspired by the colorful and multifaceted shapes which make up the intriguing world that only comes into focus under the microscope. Our latest photography competition provided an opportunity to share what you see under your microscope.
