  • Hans Janssen and his son Zacharias Janssen, Dutch spectacle-makers developed first microscope.
  • Slide should be scanned in an orderly fashion so that vital information is not missed.
  • A number of errors may be encountered while performing microscopy. Some of the common cause of errors in focusing is enlisted below.
  • The condenser annulus or annular diaphragm is opaque flat-black (light absorbing) plate with a transparent annular ring. which is positioned in the front focal plane (aperture) of the condenser so the specimen can be illuminated by defocused, parallel light wave fronts emanating from the ring .
  • Phase contrast enables internal cellular components, such as the membrane, nuclei, mitochondria, spindles, mitotic apparatus, chromosomes, Golgi . widely employed in diagnosis of tumor cells .and the growth, dynamics, and behavior of a wide variety of living cells in culture tissue culture investigations. apparatus, and cytoplasmic granules from both plant and animal cells and tissues to be readily visualized

    22. 22. What’s the power of this lens? To calculate the power of magnification, multiply the power of the ocular lens by the power of the objective , e..g.: 10x40=400 times What are the powers of magnification for each of the objectives we have on our microscopes? Fill in the table on your worksheet.
    23. 23.
    24. 24. Comparing Powers of Magnification We can see better details with higher the powers of magnification, but we cannot see as much of the image. 10x 40x Which of these images would be viewed at a higher power of magnification?
    25. 25. Let’s give it a try ... 1 – Turn on the microscope and then rotate the nosepiece to click the red-banded objective into place. 2 – Place a slide on the stage and secure it using the stage clips. Use the coarse adjustment knob (large knob) to get it the image into view and then use the fine adjustment knob (small knob) to make it clearer. 4 – When you are done, turn off the microscope and put up the slides you used. 3 – Once you have the image in view, rotate the nosepiece to view it under different powers. Draw what you see on your worksheet! Be careful with the largest objective! Sometimes there is not enough room and you will not be able to use it!
    26. 26. How to make a wet-mount slide … 1 – Get a clean slide and coverslip from your teacher. 2 – Place ONE drop of water in the middle of the slide. Don’t use too much or the water will run off the edge and make a mess! 3 – Place the edge of the cover slip on one side of the water drop. You do not need to use the stage clips when viewing wet-mount slides! 5 – Place the slide on the stage and view it first with the red-banded objective. Once you see the image, you can rotate the nosepiece to view the slide with the different objectives. 4 - Slowly lower the cover slip on top of the drop. Cover Slip Lower slowly
    27. 27. ILLUMINATION - Lamp, sunlight, battery operated lamp, 60 W bulb, Quartz halogen light. FILTERS - Blue, Green, Heat absorbing filters, Barrier filters.
    28. 28. Multiple step operation employed to attain optimal illumination: 1. Remove any diffusing filter. 2. Put a slide on the stage and focus. 3. Completely close the field diaphragm. 4. Move the condenser until the border or the iris hexagon is neat and clear. 5. Center if necessary. 6. Open the field diaphragm until the tip of the hexagon touches the field limit KOHLER’S ILLUMINATION

    83. 84. Comparison of Depth of Light Collection and Image clarity Light Microscope Confocal Scanning Laser Microscope
    84. 85. PRINCIPLE OF CONFOCAL MICROSCOPY
    85. 86. USES OF CONFOCAL MICROSCOPE <ul><li>- Observing cellular morphology in multilayered specimen </li></ul><ul><li>- Eg. used in diagnosing Ca cervix </li></ul><ul><li>- Evaluation and diagnosis of basal cell carcinoma of skin </li></ul>
    86. 87. What is the advantage of using a confocal microscope? <ul><li>- By having a confocal pinhole, the microscope is really efficient at rejecting out of focus fluorescent light so that very thin section of a sample can be analyzed. </li></ul><ul><li>- By scanning many thin sections through a sample, one can build up a very clean three-dimensional image . </li></ul>
