docteurfail:

why settle for flower crowns when you can have flowers and hats? I wanted to make a tf2-related repeating pattern the sake of making myself some clothes out of it, but I might make this available on gumroad and/or redbubble for anyone who wants to do the same (it’s transparent) or put it on your phone or whathaveyou. It took me for-effing-ever to make this but I’m happy to make more patterns of individual classes, or pairings, or threes. Feel free to send me a request. c: Hope you like it.

Fig 1. In 2008, bioengineers at the University of Minnesota stripped rat hearts of cells using detergent — you can see the results of three trials here. This process left untouched the blood vessels, collagen, and various proteins that compose the heart’s physical structure.

Fig 2. The ghost heart is flushed with red dye to show that major and minor blood vessels were left intact.

Fig 3. A researcher injects the ghost heart with heart cells from newborn mice.

Fig 4. Researchers adjusted the environmental conditions to simulate natural conditions, meaning they provided oxygenate fluids, pressure, and an electrical stimulus. You can see the bioreactor schematic here.
