Compound Light Microscope The “Compound” Part Simple microscopes have single magnifying lens (like a magnifying glass). Compound microscopes have two sets of lenses for magnification. Lens closer to the eye = ocular lens (magnifying power of 10x). Lenses closer to the object being viewed = objective lens . (Most light microscopes used in biology have three or four objective lenses). The “Light” Part Bri ght-field light microscopes produce a dark image against brighter, backlit background. Provide a 2-D image. Commonly used to view stained cells.

Your Microscope Take Care of Your Scope: It is your responsibility to take care of your scope and learn to use it properly. I randomly check scopes to see if they are put away correctly. If yours is not, I may subtract points from your lab grade. Microscope Log: If you get your scope out and find that it has not been put away properly, make an entry in the microscope log. Getting Scope Out: The scope that you use is numbered to correspond to your seat number, on edge of lab bench in front of you. When transporting your scope, always hold it with one hand under the base , and one hand around the arm . Putting Scope Away: Clean stage if it is oily, and use lens paper to clean lenses. Shortest objective lens (the one with the red band) should be pointing down toward stage. Use course focus to position stage as low as it can go . Always put scope back in numbered parking spot in scope cabinet. ** Now everyone get out their scope ** BASE ARM Image: Compound light microscope , Moisey From the Virtual Microbiology Classroom on ScienceProfOnline.com

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
