Image of the Month

This month’s image shows successful processing of a cornea. The corneal transplant will be kept fixed and well-fed in an antibiotic nutrient solution up to 34 days until transplantation. The picture is part of a photo documentary by photographer Alexandra Bidian, capturing the process of tissue donation, processing and transplantation.
