Animalia, Plantae, protists, fungi, monera. Last three studies by micro.
Bacteria, archea(prokaryotes), eukarya
Light Microscope
May requirer staining and may be hard to see
Dark field
Phase contrast
Flourescent microscope
emphasis on size.(Have to be improved upon)
Ability to distinguich closely spaced objects.(Has to be improved upon)
Phase contrast microscope
distinguished btw surface features of specimen by utlizing tunneled light.
Almost 3d views
Flourescent Microscope
require the specimen to be capable of emitting light following excitation by a certain wavelength of light.
Confocal microscopes
utilize a laser beam and digitilized images to proved a 2d perspective of the cell.
Electron Microscope
Magnification power- 1000X greater then light microscope. electron beams have very short wavelength. shorter the wavelength the better the magnification.
types of EMs
Transmission-->facilitates viewing of informal structures
scanning-->surface view.
Scanning probe microscope
utlizes an electrical current.(tunneling current) can see individual atoms and proteins on a cell.
