6 Things You Need to Know About a Microscope

A microscope total magnification is considered as magnification of an objective lens multiplied by the magnification of an eyepiece. For large items at macro-level, you need a high power microscope which is a stereoscope (also called dissecting microscope), typically with total magnification of 5x-50x. For observation of small and tiny objects at micron levels, you […]

How to See an Atom with a Microscope

Scientists at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) have found an intelligent method to create stunningly detailed 3D reconstructing of platinum nanoparticles at an atomic scale. These are being used to study tiny structural irregularities called dislocations. You can read the article of Chien-Chun Chen et al. pubclished in Nature on April 2013 here.

Digital microscope, small, smart and with most flexible design to customize

Introduction We have developed a robust and inexpensive USB-based imaging engine utilizing a camera sensor. This technology is the result of our development of the IncuScope inverted fluorescent microscope. We would like to offer it as a module for other instrument makers to use in a variety of imaging functions. This is the most customizable […]

Live Cell Imaging

Live Cell Imaging Live cell imaging is the study of the life of living cells / organisms using a time-lapse video microscopy in which the cells are kept at the closest conditions to a regular laboratory incubator. Live cell imaging is used by scientists and researchers to obtain a better understanding of dynamic events occur […]

Metallurgical Microscopy Basics & Applications

What is a metallurgical microscope? A simple answer is that a metallurgical microscope is another type of light microscopes and unlike a biological microscope it uses a reflected white light. Obviously the nature of samples is different for such a use, i.e. a metal, semiconductor or plastic rather than a biology slide, cell, living microorganism […]

Phase Contrast Microscopy

What is Phase Contrast Microscopy? Phase Contrast is a contrast enhancing optical microscopy technique in which an unstained transparent sample is seen with high brightness by shifting phase difference of light. The idea of Phase Contrast Imaging was brought by Frits Zernike in 1930’s, a Dutch physicist, who got the Nobel prize in 1953 for […]

Microscope History

The oldest history of microscope goes to 1590s, when two Dutch spectacle makers, Zacharias Jansen and his father Hans Jansen, started some tests with lenses. They combined several lenses and put inside a tube and boom, they made the discovery. They saw an object at the end of the tube can bee seen way larger […]
