Mitosis is cell division in eukaryotes. During mitosis the chromosomes are visible. Interphase is not considered part of cell division. The following stages are Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase and Telophase.

Higher resolutions are, unfortunately not available. A magnification of 400x was used to obtain these images. The cells were treated with a dye that has a high affinity for DNA.

Interphase

Interphase. The nucleus is visible

Prophase

Prophase. Chromosomes are starting to form.

Metaphase

Metaphase. The chromosomes align at the equator of the cell.

Anaphase

Anaphase. The two sister chromatids are separated.

Telophase

Telophase. The spindle fibers are still visible between the two nuclei. The cytoplasm has not yet divided.
