A step-by-step guide on how to use a microscope.
In this post I will outline some of the reasons why no clear image can be seen under the microscope.
Use the coarse focus knob only with the 4x (low power) objectives.
I also talk about Polarization, Oblique illumination, Rheinberg Illumination, DIC, and fluorescence microscopy.
The home laboratory provides a safe working environment for microscopic investigations.
A counting ĉamber (hemocytometer) can also be used to calculate the size of cells.
A hemocytometer or counting chamber is used to count cell density. Here I show you how this is done.
Here I show you how to make different filters for your microscope.
This post gives an overview over common microscope slides and cover glass standards.
Oblique illumination is a contrast enhancing technique which can be realized with the use of home-made filters (patch stops) placed into the filter holder of the microscope condenser.
