New illustrations available for you

Ascorbic acid

or Vitamic C. According to PubchemAscorbic Acid is a natural water-soluble vitamin (Vitamin C). Ascorbic acid is a potent reducing and antioxidant agent that functions in fighting bacterial infections, in detoxifying reactions, and in the formation of collagen in fibrous tissue, teeth, bones, connective tissue, skin, and capillaries. Found in citrus and other fruits, and in vegetables, vitamin C cannot be produced or stored by humans and must be obtained in the diet. 


Spinal cord

The brain and spinal cord together make up the central nervous system (CNS). You can combine these illustrations with others available on mind the graph to show the complete CNS. You can see here more illustrations of neurology. 



Bamboos are evergreen perennial flowering plants. They are part of the grass family Poaceae. As compared to forest trees, bamboo species grow fast. Bamboo plantations can be readily harvested for a shorter period than tree plantations.


Scientific illustrations are a powerful tool to communicate in science. They can show details and abstract concepts. Also, it is a way to smooth the impact of photographs of medical/surgical procedures. Take a look at our new medical illustrations:


Medical symptoms: Cough

On mind the graph you find a “medical symptoms” category with hundreds illustrations. We added these two illustrations this week, so you can combine them to explain medical symptoms to your patients, students or readers.



Uterine cervix 

The cervix is the lower part of the uterus in the human female reproductive system. It is important to visiting a doctor for a regular check-up to avoid several diseases, as cervical cancer.


Gastric bypass

It is a surgical procedure in which the stomach is divided into a small upper pouch and a much larger lower “remnant” pouch and then the small intestine is rearranged to connect to both. The operation is prescribed to treat morbid obesity and other medical conditions. We already have other illustrations of gastric bypass and now we added other two showing the digestive system:
