The electron microscope allows your sample to be magnified up to
at TTU in Cookeville, TN was used to capture many of the images you’ll see today. A unique property of this microscope is that it allows us to view samples at pressures up to 20 torr and in more natural environments.
1. Hyaline – exhibits a perforated test (shell).
2. Agglutinated – exhibits a test composed of small particles that have been “glued” on.
3. Porcellaneous – exhibits an imperforated, smooth test that resembles porcelain.
