BASIC RULES FOR THE CARE OF THE COMPOUND MICROSCOPE 1. Check the number on the microscope assigned to you with its corresponding place in the cabinet. 2. Grasp the microscope arm firmly with one hand and the base with the other hand, and lift the microscope carefully from the shelf. Hold it upright and close to your body when carrying it. Gently place it on the laboratory bench. 3. Uncoil the power cord just enough to plug into the outlet. 4. Examine the microscope to see if any damage is apparent or if the microscope was put away in an unacceptable condition; if so, report this immediately to your instructor. 5. Using lens paper ONLY, clean all lenses, wiping several times. DO NOT use paper towels, Bibulous Paper, Kleenex, Kimwipes, clothing, or other types of materials on lenses. 6. Examine the stage to see if it is free of oil and slides. And that the stage is rolled up as far towards the objectives as it will go. In other words, you want the objectives and the stage to be as close together as possible. 7. Turn on the light to make sure it is functional.
