The Pharmaceutical Collection

The history of pharmaceutical agents is as old as that of man himself. Since
the dawn of time, man has used a wide variety of substances to alleviate
pain, fight disease, and improve health. Early remedies were often ineffective
and sometimes very dangerous and potentially lethal. Today, there are
thousands of natural and synthetic drugs that constitute the pharmaceutical
palette of modern physicians.

The Molecular Expressions Pharmaceuticals Collection contains over 100
drugs that have been recrystallized and photographed under the
microscope. Many of these are presented here and we hope that you enjoy
your visit.

The Pharmaceutical links below lead to progressive JPEG images of the
drugs that range in size from about 35 Kb up to about 85 Kb.
