  • Using Darkfield Microscopy To Enhance Contrast
    Here is an article that explains the uses of dark field microscopes, its theories and its limitations. As all of us who have undergone chemistry and biology in school, we know how light microscopy can be a vital and indispensable tool when it comes to experiments. However, not all bright field compound microscopes have the ability or mechanism to enhance the structures of certain biological organisms. This is where the dark field microscopes come in, but some schools have already figured out that the acquisition of dark field microscopes can be expensive and cannot be covered by the school’s budget. So this article took matters in its own hands and shows us how to inexpensively convert a bright field microscope into one that can allow is to observe low contrast specimens a dark field. Still images of bright field microscopy against dark field microscopy are provided so that we can easily distinguish one from the other. read more...
  • Hexagonal Water, Zeta Potential And Dark Field Microscopy (LIVE BLOOD CELL ANALYSIS)
    Dark field microscopes allow the viewer to observe cellular components within a patient. This article discusses how the cellular hydration of a person can be used in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. read more...
  • Live Blood Cell Analysis
    Live blood cell analysis using dark field microscopes are discussed in this article. The procedure is quite simple. The patient’s finger is pricked and a drop of his or her blood is placed on a slide. A cover slip is then carefully positioned over the drop of blood to prevent it from drying. With no stains or other extra preparations, the blood can now be observed under a dark field microscope. read more...
  • Dark Field Viewing
    This article presents some information about dark field microscopes and describes where and how they are used. According to this article, it is wonder why microscopies using dark field microscopes are not being promoted and used more often. This method is a relatively inexpensive option when it comes to phase contrast optics. The images also appear to be of much better-quality when compared to other contrast and bright field equipment. read more...
  • Dark Field (LIVE BLOOD CELL) Microscopy
    This article is about dark field microscopes and their uses in blood analysis. Although conventional medical practices do not use this method of analyzing blood too often, there are certain health care specialists who find the use of dark field microscopes functional in the examination of blood cells that are not usually found in conventional medical tests. read more...
  • Darkfield Microscopes
    Darkfield compound light microscopes are light microscopes fitted with a darkfield condenser and sometimes special microscope objectives with a darkfield iris diaphragm built inside. These types of microscopes are useful for examining live blood cells under darkfield microscopy techniques. What is the advantage of viewing blood using a darkfield microscope? read more...
  • The Light Path of the Microscope
    The light path of the microscope light through a dark field microscope. Light go through the microscope for lighting of the sample. The condenser lens concentrates the light in the direction of the sample. A particularly sized disc, the “patch stop” obstructs a number of lights from the sample, parting an outer ring of illumination. read more...
  • Darkfield Microscopy Imaging Techniques
    Darkfield microscopy imaging techniques provide a method to view features in blood not normally shown with phase contrast and brightfield illumination. This method illuminates the specimen from the side, not from behind, so the background is black. Minute features of the blood are shown in a glowing light as it reflects off their surfaces. read more...
