This item is an interactive tutorial relating to photomicrography, the use of photography to capture images in a microscope.  Most biological specimens lack sufficient color and contrast to be readily imaged in optical microscopes.  This virtual microscope activity allows students to enhance contrast by adding or deleting color filters as they view specimens.  Users can choose from an image set of five stained specimens, including scar tissue, disease tissue, and potato starch.  See Related Materials on this page for a link to the authors' full tutorial on photomicrography.

This item is part of a larger collection of materials on optics and microscopy developed by the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory and Florida State University.  See Related Materials on this page for a link to the full tutorial on photomicrography.
