Lab 1 use of the microscope introduction individual microbial cells are usually too small to see with the unaided, “naked” eye the binocular compound light microscope is used to magnify an image and allows us to study the structure of tiny cells. Optika lab-1 / lab-2 stereo-microscope alignment and operation interpupillary distance move the two eyepiece tubes until only one circular field can be seen through the two eyepieces lf two circles appear the interpupillary distance is too big, and f 2 overlapped circles appear the interpupillary distance is too small.
The part of the microscope that we look through (give both names) eyepiece or ocular lens the part of the microscope which can be changed to increase or decrease the magnifying power of the microscope. Microscope lab for freshman level biology where students learn to focus a light microscope they examine a slide with the letter e, common things, like dust, and a prepared slide with threads to illustrate depth perception. 1 lab no 1 microscope lab estimating size and calculating magnification part 1: estimating size of specimens under the microscope a determination the approximate field diameter for each of the objective lenses by. The $1 pocket microscope rather than having to first ship them back to a laboratory health workers in poor countries can detect the parasites that cause malaria, leishmaniasis.
Lab 1: the microscope microscopes are tools that allow us to see objects or detail too small to be seen with the unaided eye two aspects of microscopy determine how clearly we can see. Introduction to the microscope lab activity introduction micro refers to tiny, scope refers to view or look at microscopes are tools used to enlarge images of small objects so as they can be studied the compound light microscope is an instrument containing two lenses, which magnifies, and a variety of knobs to resolve (focus.
