Human red blood cell (erythrocyte) after one minute in a hypertonic solution (1.8% NaCl), twice the salt content of normal blood. Water has moved out of the cell and the cell has decreased in both diameter and thickness and taken on a distorted shape known as crenulated. SEM X10,000 (based on 4" x 5")
