    Microscopy Summary The entire exercise was all about caring for and using the microscope. We performed various activities that enabled us to familiarize ourselves with the parts and uses of the microscope. Using the microscope, we observed different objects such as cotton, silk, hair, and even a letter "e." We viewed it using both the low power objective and the high power objective. We did these activities in order to better understand how the compound light microscope works and also to

    Microscopy allows one to view samples and objects that cannot be seen with the human eye. With all the modern techniques used in the biology field today, microscopy is one of the most important one that allows us to see a world beyond what our eyes limits us too. The majority of both organisms that are helpful and harmful are too small to be seen with the human eye, and without the microscope we would have not understood the mechanism behind the major diseases we know today. Microscopy has helped

    Confocal Microscopy Lab Confocal microscopy uses a laser that produces excitation light. This laser light reflects off of a dichroic mirror and then the laser light hits two mirrors that are mounted on motors. The mirrors then scan the laser light across the sample. Dye that is found in the sample then fluoresces (Weeks, 2003). Filamin was labeled with a red fluorescent label rhodamine (TRITC) and actin was labeled with the green fluorescent label fluoroscein (FITC) which was conjugated to the

    Electron Microscopy and the Study of the Cell Electron Microscopes have revolutionised today’s understanding of the cell. In 1838 Scheleiden, a botanist theorised that the basic unit of a plant was a cell, the following year the scientist Schwann came up with a similar hypothesis this time related to animal cells, their combined ideas gave us the cell theory, the idea that all living things were made from similar building blocks, cells. It took 100 years before this idea was confirmed

    Scanning electrochemical microscopy (SECM) is a technique that is part of a broader range of techniques that are commonly referred to as scanning probe microscopy. It has a wide array of applications in chemistry, biology, and even the material sciences. SECM uses a ultramicroelectrode to measure the local electrochemical behavior of a substrate in a solution. When introduced, the ultramicroelectrode acts as the electron conductor in the substrate and the added electrolyte acts as the ionic conductor

    research on the microscopic level, with utilization of an array of techniques and technology. Toshiyuki Murai and his lab have been observing and experimenting with the adhesion of leukocytes with two distinct methods of microscopy: fluorescence optical microscopy and immuno-electron microscopy using an atmospheric scanning electron microscope (ASEM), with more focus on the latter. These circulating leukocytes in the blood have a means to adhere while rolling down the wall of blood vessels due to a set

    probe microscopy in nano mechanical testing has started with the invention of the scanning tunneling microscope in the year 1981. Till then based on the type of principles there are number of models developed and are in use. Scanning probe microscopy found popularity owing to its ease in versatility in dealing with a number of issues, typically it is used to identify the material properties on nano to even pico scales. Scanning probe microscopy techniques such as atomic/friction force microscopy(AFM/FFM)

    magnified. Light microscopy was first used to magnify the image of the cells using stains. However, some tissue and subcellular structures are too small to be seen even under the light microscope. Therefore another technique was found to visualise the cell in more details. To study the smaller features of the cell, electron microscopy are used. Electron microscopy use electron beam to visualise the specimen. Electron microscopy can only magnify thin structures, therefore fluorescent microscopy are used

    Dr. Joseph Henry Wythe (1822-1901) was born in Manchester, England on March 19, 1822, the son of Joseph Wythe and Mary Chamberlain. In 1832, JH Wythe accompanied his parents to America, and began his education in the private schools of Philadelphia where the family had settled. Through his own efforts and supplemented by private instruction, he became proficient in the natural sciences and the languages of Greek, Hebrew and Latin. In 1842, JH Wythe became an ordained Methodist minister at the early

A few examples are for surveillance in places inaccessible to or dangerous for human beings, in science for tissue microscopy, and in education. Today you can find a television in almost every home. This is why I decided to research the history of the television. The first television devices were based on an 1884 invention called the scanning disk, patented by Paul
