Phase Contrast Microscopy Images
on Display

The phase contrast microscopy images below display a technique using special phase contrast objectives and phase contrast condenser achieving an improved contrast using light microscopy when viewing transparent/colorless species or specimens.  Cells and their components are hard to visualize using a light microscope but phase contrast allows for cells to be studied "live" without needing to be fixed or stained.
