Transmitted / reflected light microscopy

Equipment Type: Transmitted/reflected light microscopy

For advanced research work, we have a Leica DMR transmitted / reflected (bright field) light microscope with polarisers, nomarski (DIC), and with lenses from x2.5 to x100 (for oil immersion). This microscope can be used for looking at standard microscope slide preparations with cover slips in transmitted light and polished blocks in reflected light. DIC is useful for studying microfossils, particularly palynomorphs, pollen, diatoms and coccoliths.
