Uses for Darkfield Microscopy

Darkfield microscopy allows for beautiful, detailed images to be revealed with one opaque disk used to block the light into just a few scattered beams. The background is dark and the sample reflects the light of the beams only. This results in a light colored specimen against a dark background. Darkfield microscopy is perfect for viewing clear or translucent details.

When to Use a Darkfield Microscope:

  • Single- celled organisms
  • Live Blood Analysis
  • Transparent Specimens
  • Live Bacteria
  • Soil Samples
  • Pond water Bacteria
  • Seawater Samples
  • Pollen Samples
Darkfield microscopy make most invisible specimens appear visible under the microscope, especially living organisms.
