Brightfield Microscope (Compound Light Microscope)

Brightfield Microscope

Brightfield Microscope Definition Brightfield Microscope is also known as the Compound Light Microscope. It is an optical microscope that uses light rays to produce a dark image against a bright background. It is the standard microscope that is used in Biology, Cellular Biology, and Microbiological Laboratory studies. This microscope is used to view fixed and … Read more Brightfield Microscope (Compound Light Microscope)

Dissecting microscope (Stereo or stereoscopic microscope)

Labeled Dissecting microscope (Stereo or stereoscopic microscope)

Dissecting microscope (Stereo microscope) These are also known as stereoscopic microscopes. This is a type of digital optical microscope designed with a low magnification power (5x-250x), by use of light reflected from the surface of the specimen, and not the light reflected the specimen. Its primary role is for dissection of specimens and viewing and … Read more Dissecting microscope (Stereo or stereoscopic microscope)

Light Microscope diagram

History of Microscopy: Overview The evolution of the Microbiology field put to perspective the need to identify, view, observe and understand microorganisms, including their structural morphologies and mechanisms. Microbiology’s scope is to study organisms and minute agents that can only be examined and observed with a microscope. Although scientifically, the first simple microscope was discovered … Read more Light Microscope- definition, principle, types, parts, magnification

Parts of a microscope with functions and labeled diagram

Microscope Parts

Overview of microscope Having been constructed in the 16th Century, Microscopes have revolutionalized science with their ability to magnify small objects such as microbial cells, producing images with definitive structures that are identifiable and characterizable. So, what are microscopes? Microscopes are instruments that are used in science laboratories, to visualize very minute objects such as … Read more Parts of a microscope with functions and labeled diagram

Phase contrast Microscopy- definition, principle, parts, uses

Phase-contrast Microscopy

Phase contrast microscopy definition Unstained living cells absorb practically no light. Poor light absorption results in extremely small differences in the intensity distribution in the image. This makes the cells barely, or not at all, visible in a brightfield microscope. Phase-contrast microscopy is an optical microscopy technique that converts phase shifts in the light passing … Read more Phase contrast Microscopy- definition, principle, parts, uses

Fluorescence Microscopy- definition, principle, parts, uses

Fluorescence Microscope

Fluorescence microscope definition A fluorescence microscope is an optical microscope that uses fluorescence and phosphorescence instead of, or in addition to, reflection and absorption to study properties of organic or inorganic substances. Fluorescence is the emission of light by a substance that has absorbed light or other electromagnetic radiation while phosphorescence is a specific type … Read more Fluorescence Microscopy- definition, principle, parts, uses

Compound microscope- definition, labeled diagram, parts, uses

Compound Microscope

Compound Microscope Definition The term microscope can be split into two separate words, ‘micro’ and ‘scope’, where the term ‘micro’ means small or tiny, and ‘scope’ means to view or to observe. Therefore, a microscope can be understood as an instrument to observe tiny elements. The optical microscope often referred to as the light microscope, is a type of microscope that uses … Read more Compound microscope- definition, labeled diagram, parts, uses
