The numerical aperature of an objective lens determines the ability of that lens to magnify portions of the specimen. 3. A stain is used to induce CONTRAST in the specimen. 4. The smallest element in a digital picture is referred to as a PIXEL 5. The total magnification through a compound microscope is equal to the magnification of the OBJECTIVE times the magnification of the EYESPIECE 6. Oil immersion improves light microscopy by increasing the REFRACTIVE INDEX of the medium between the objective lens and the specimen. 7. ____________________ refers to the ability to distinguish objects on each side of the plane of focus. 8. A microscopic technique used to increase contrast in an unstained specimen is SCATTERING 9. PROPHASE is the stage of mitosis in which the chromatin material begins to condense into individual chromosomes and the nuclear membrane begins to
