Anatomy A215 Virtual Microscopy
    Use of the optical microscope
    Histology is the microscopic study of cells and tissues. It is one of the disciplines that teaches us how the organs of the body work, renew and repair themselves. A good understanding of our microfabric is central to practically every form of biological research, and certainly a necessity for those wanting to more about the working of the human body.

    Although we use the virtual microscope in Anatomy A215, we would still like you to have some idea of the workings of a traditional optical microscope. For those wanting to learn more about the working of the optical microscope, the next few web pages will illustrate the major components and how it is used.


    Please don't leave anything out, I want to see how a regular microscope works.
