Essentials of Light Microscopy: How to set up your microscope correctly
A Hands-on workshop using transmitted light microscopes.
The course will include
Standard Light Microscopy - how to set-up, align, adjusting eyepieces, basic troubleshooting.
Contrast Techniques - how to align phase contrast and basic introduction to DIC.
Alignment of Fluorescence will also be available
The course will give very brief introductions to transmitted light microscopy and
then focus on the practical elements of how to physically set-up a standard transmitted
light microscope, including phase contrast. We hope to also have a DIC and fluorescence
stand available for those wishing to practice alignment using these techniques.
