Microscope Training Guide

The guide linked above explains general usage info & the many advanced features available on most of our microscopes. New users are encouraged to read this, and also request in-person training by Demis.

Image Analysis Software

Many of our microscopes have cameras and software for image capture. If you know the microscope and objective used for acquiring a photo, you can make calibrated measurements on the photos at your own desktop using the following software:

Nikon

The Nikon scopes have 3rd party cameras that are connected to computers via AM Scope software which allows users to digitally capture images through the microscope and make calibrated measurements.

Microscope #2: Nikon Optiphot 200 (Bay 2)

  • Trinocular: Ocular Binoc. + Camera (Simultaneous)
  • Objectives: 5x, 10x, 20x, 50x, 100x, 150x
  • Filters: Green, ND
  • Bright/Dark Field
  • Differential Interference Contrast (DIC/Nomarski)
    • DIC only available on 100x and 150x mags due to image quality reduction at low mags due to DIC prisms which were removed for low mags.
  • Top Reflected Illumination (Episcopic)
  • AMScope 14MP Cameras with calibrated software for measurements. Software available for desktop measurements. Link here.

Microscope #3: Nikon Eclipse L200 (Bay 6)

  • Manual for Nikon Eclipse L200D
  • Trinocular: Binoc. + Camera (Mutually Exclusive)
  • Objectives: 5x, 10x, 20x, 50x, 100x, 150x
  • Filters: Green, ND
  • Bright/Dark Field
  • Differential Interference Contrast (DIC/Nomarski)
  • Top Reflected Illumination (Episcopic)
  • AMScope 14MP Cameras with calibrated software for measurements. Software available for desktop measurements. Link here.

Microscope #4: Nikon Eclipse L200D (Bay 6)

  • Trinocular: Binoc. + Camera (Mutually Exclusive)
  • Objectives: 5x, 10x, 20x, 50x, 100x, 150x
  • Filters: Green, ND
  • Bright/Dark Field
  • Differential Interference Contrast (DIC/Nomarski)
  • Top Reflected (Episcopic) & Bottom Transmission (Diascopic) Illumination
  • AMScope 14MP Cameras with calibrated software for measurements. Software available for desktop measurements. Link here.

Olympus

The lab has two general purpose Olympus microscopes, and two specialized microscopes that require training to use, although both of these can also be used for general imaging.
