The purpose of this book is to provide the most comprehensive, easy-to-use, and informative guide on light microscopy. Light and Video Microscopy will prepare the reader for the accurate interpretation of an image and understanding of the living cell. With the presentation of geometrical optics, it will assist the reader in understanding image formation and light movement within the microscope. It also provides an explanation of the basic modes of light microscopy and the components of modern electronic imaging systems and guides the reader in determining the physicochemical information of living and developing cells, which influence interpretation. * Brings together mathematics, physics, and biology to provide a broad and deep understanding of the light microscope * Clearly develops all ideas from historical and logical foundations * Laboratory exercises included to assist the reader with practical applications * Microscope discussions include: bright field microscope, dark field microscope, oblique illumination, phase-contrast microscope, photomicrography, fluorescence microscope, polarization microscope, interference microscope, differential interference microscope, and modulation contrast microscopeuse the digital camera to capture images by using the continuous mode. Plug the digital camera (e.g. Nikon 4500 attached to an optical coupler) into a video capture card ( 3. ... Adjust the manual gain (contrast) and manual black level (brightness) so that the cheek cells, which are invisible when looking through the oculars, become visible on the video ... Attach a digital camera (e.g. Hitachi KP-D50 color digital camera) to the Integral flashpoint 128 frame 10.
