Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-third as long as a Mitochondrion.
In other words, 0.00065 milimeters is 0.346 times the length of a Mitochondrion, and the length of a Mitochondrion is 2.89 times that amount.
(Eukaryotic; average)
A mitochondrion measures between 0.75 and 3 micrometers (µm). The mitochondrion is commonly referred to as the powerhouse of the cell, responsible for the generation of ATP. The size, shape, and distribution of mitochondria varies widely, with human liver cells each having 1,000 to 2,000 mitochondria.
It's about one-third as long as an E. coli Bacterium.
In other words, the length of an E. coli Bacterium is 3 times 0.00065 milimeters.
(Escherichia coli) (rod-shaped configuration)
An rod-shaped E. coli bacterium measures about 0.002 milimeters in length. A staple of biology labs, E. coli can reproduce in as little as twenty minutes.
It's about one-tenth as long as a Nucleus (Cellular).
In other words, 0.00065 milimeters is 0.11 times the length of a Nucleus (Cellular), and the length of a Nucleus (Cellular) is 9.1 times that amount.
(for animal cell)
It's about one-tenth as long as a Red Blood Cell.
In other words, the length of a Red Blood Cell is 11 times 0.00065 milimeters.
(a.k.a. RBCs, a.k.a. haematids, a.k.a. erythrocyte, a.k.a. erythroid cells, a.k.a. red blood corpuscles) An average Red Blood Cell measures 7.5 µm (micrometers) in diameter. An average human has 20 - 30 trillion red blood cells in their body and each cell completes a circulatory lap in about 20 seconds.
