Introduction to the oil immersion compound microscope

Introduction to the oil immersion compound microscope


Purpose of microscope

Purpose of microscope

  • Microscopy is the technology of making very small things visible to the human eye.

  • Used in the diagnosis of many diseases.

  • Used for soil, insects and rocks.

  • Used in pathological laboratories and medical.

  • Industrial microscope : Used for metals and various kinds of measurement .

  • Educational microscope.

  • Used for research.


Purpose of microscope in microbiology

Purpose of microscope in Microbiology

  • Bacteria is one of the small microorganisms that can’t be seen with the naked eyes, most bacteria range in size between 0.5-2.0 micrometers (μm)so, there is a need to magnify the bacteria several times by using a microscope in order to see it.

  • There are different types of microscopes which are used in microbial life.

  • In this lab, you will become familiar with the use of the light compound microscope (particularly oil immersion microscopy) and will compare the relative size and shape of various microorganisms.


Basic component of microscope

Basic component of microscope


Microscope consists of 4 main parts

Microscope consists of 4 main parts:

  • frame work.

  • Adjustment system.

  • Magnification.

  • Lighting System.


Frame work

Frame work

Its includes three parts:

  • Base

  • Arm

  • mechanical stage


Mechanical stage

Mechanical Stage

  • Stage- the location of the specimen to be viewed

  • Clips- utilized in holding the specimen in place


Stage knobs control

Stage Knobs control

  • Top knob: is to move the forward and backward.

  • Bottom knob: is to move the stage right and left.


Adjustment system

Adjustment system

It consists of the following parts:

  • Optical tube.

  • Coarse adjustment.

  • Fine adjustment.


Focus and resolution parts

Focus and Resolution Parts

  • Course-adjustment knob- is the larger of the two knobs. It is used in bringing the object into quick focus.

  • Fine-adjustment knob- is used for improving the clarity of the image, especially when viewing under high power.


Interpupillary adjustment

Interpupillary adjustment

To control the distance between the ocular lenses to adapt the distance between viewers eyes so, the eyepiece lenses will spread apart or get closer together to fit each individual.


Diopter ring adjustment

Getting in focus

Getting in Focus


Magnification

Magnification

Microscope has two sets of lenses are :

  • Ocular lens (eyepiece).

  • Objetive lenes.


Introduction to the oil immersion compound microscope

Microscope lenses:

  • Ocular lens or eyepiece is used for viewing.

  • Revolving nosepiece contains objective lenses that are used to magnify the image in combination with the ocular lens.

  • The objective of microscopy is not just to increase magnification, but to do so while retaining sufficient resolution.


Total magnification

TOTAL MAGNIFICATION

Total magnifigation:

Powers of theeyepiece (10X) multiplied by objective lenses determine total magnification.


Introduction to the oil immersion compound microscope

  • Depth of focus:

  • thickness of the field;

  • as magnification increased , depth of focus is decreased.

  • Field of vision:

  • the surface area of view;

  • as magnification increased , the area of view decreased.


Oil immersion lens

Oil immersion lens


Refraction and refractive index

Refraction and Refractive Index

  • Refraction = bending.

  • Refractive index: measurement of the extent that the substance bend light.

  • Field of view > or equal 500X cause increase in diffraction due to

  • the differences in refractive index between glass and lenses (1.51) and air (1) which increase refraction,

  • and small lenses present in high magnification

  • so that oil is used in these lenses as it has refractive index similar to glass, lenses and specimen which equal 1.51 ,as a result the distortion will decrease.


Resolution

Resolution

  • The objective of microscopy is not just to increase magnification, but to do so while retaining sufficient resolution.

  • Resolution: It is the ability of microscope, at specific magnification to distinguish two separate objects situated close to one another and the ability of the lens to reveal fine details.

  • The smaller the distance between the two specific objects that can be distinguished apart, the greater the resolution power of the microscope.


Introduction to the oil immersion compound microscope

  • As magnification increased the resolution also increased.

  • To achieve high magnification with good resolution the objective lens must be small.

  • Shorter wavelengths of light provide greater resolution.

  • Under the best conditions, with violet light (wavelength = 0.4 um) and a numerical aperture of 1.4, the light microscope can theoretically achieve a limit of resolution of just under 0.2 pm.


Introduction to the oil immersion compound microscope

A typical cell is

10-20 um

Light microscope

sees 0.2 um

1 mm=10-3 m

1 um=10-6 m

1 nm=10-9 m

1 A=Angstrom

=10-10 m


Numerical aperture

Numerical Aperture

Numerical Aperture (N.A.):  This is a number that expresses the ability of a lens to resolve fine detail in an object being observed.  It is derived by a complex mathematical formula and is related to the angular aperture of the lens and the index of refraction of the medium found between the lens and the specimen.


Lighting system

Lighting System:

Lighting system consists of modern microscopes of the following parts :

  • Power supply

  • Transformer

  • Variable resistance

  • light source

  • sub stage condenser

  • Aperture diaphragm


Lighting system1

Lighting System:

  • The Condenser (fucous light through specimen )

  • Lamp- typically a light source underneath the stage

  • Diaphragm-

    controls the amount of light allowed to pass through the specimen


How to use microscope

How to use Microscope

  • Plug in microscope and turn on illuminator. Rotate nosepiece to lock 4X objective in place

  • Place smear on stage and center it under the 4X objective.

  • Using the course adjustment knob, move the objective lens to its lowest point. Look through the ocular and focus upward with the coarse adjustment until an image comes into view.

  • Rotate nosepiece to obtain the next objective lens 10x and repeat step 3.

  • Rotate nosepiece to obtain the next objective lens 40x .

  • Look through the ocular and focus upward with the fine adjustment until an image comes into view.

  • When using oil immersion lens put a drop of oil on the slide and Rotate nosepiece and repeat step 6.


Factors that influence the quality and size of image

Factors that influence the quality and size of image:

  • Quality of Microscope and lenses.

  • Size of sample.

  • Type of sample.

  • Amount of light on the sample.

  • Quality of sample.
