Microscopic images now seen in better clarity and greater detail through Phase Contrast microscopy
Phase Contrast Microscopes.com introduces the Phase Contrast microscope, a microscopy unit that allows the clear viewing of unstained biological material, far better than from ordinary compound light microscopes.

Phase Contrast microscopes allow better image quality in viewing specimens due to a special technique that translates light wave shift phase into intensity shift, allowing visible contrast. This process necessarily requires a phase diaphragm to be placed in the back aperature plane. A phase annulus ring is also provided by using a special phase contrast condenser. The phase contrast diaphragm is aligned with the phase annulus cone of light, allowing the viewing of the back of the aperature plane in the objective. For best results, however, it is important that the correct phase contrast objective is paired with the matching size phase annulus ring in the phase contrast condenser.
Phase Contrast microscopes are ideally used in applications that need particularly clear image magnification, like molecular and cellular biology research, microbiological research, animal breeding research and study, spermatozoa analysis, sperm motility monitoring, sperm count and morphology, living tissue culture viewing, analysis of human squamous cheek cells, and clinical and medical diagnosis. Phase Contrast microscopes are also used in the detection of mold and mildew, mold spore identification and counting, treatment of toxic black mold and stack mold, dust mite analysis, asbestos testing, and monitoring of particulates found in air pollution.
The microscopy units and equipment sold by Phase Contrast Microscopes all have USB connectivity capability, allowing them to be hooked up to a personal computer or even a laptop for viewing on computer monitors and image storage straight into the hard drive.
