Three-day pass for very limited access to a few essays


The first step in getting started with darkfield microscopy is to make sure that the system one is acquiring is configured to one's needs.  Once deciding on the model and camera, one needs a few basic supplies and usually some assistance in setting up the system and learning to use it.  Mistakes can be costly so it pays to have some help with the assembly and proper use of the equipment.

Next, of course, comes the sampling and there are some tips for preparing the slides and coverslips as well as how to take the best sample possible.  Then, the sample is placed on the microscope stage and explored.  Depending on one's background, what one does and does not actually observe can differ.  Being a medical doctor, hemotologist, pathologist, or microscopist does not necessarily prepare one for interpreting what is seen in darkfield.
