Here's the second couple of packages for our laboratory at home!!!
During quarantine, we've been receiving a couple of orders for our laboratory at home! Here's the first few packages delivered. ~Special thank you to the postal service personnel~
Rotifer on bright field and our 3D printed Nikon Dark Field || Phylum Rotifera.
It is very difficult to be able to say with certainty what is the genus and the species, but we can agree that this is certainly in the Phylum Rotifera. We can say this because it contains its main characteristics: a corona ("trochal disk & trochus"), organs like the mastax and cerebral ganglion and other related to the digestive and nervous system respectively.
Did you see our blog post "Don't have a dark field? No problem!" ? We told our 3D printed Dark Field story!
In our first attempts we had too much light coming through the filter. You can see how everything in the sample has a huge halo from second 00:12:00 to minute 1:22:10 ! Once we were able to find the perfect dimensions for the filter, the difference was significant. See minute 1:55:00, frames are cleaner and smoother.
Short-clip of Microorganisms in a Drop of Water || Microorganisms are observed with Dark Field. This was one of the first clips we took with our Nikon Labophot microscope. By then we didn't have a Dark Field, therefore we had to get creative & we ended up 3D printing a Nikon Dark Field filter which we used almost for a year. Microorganisms shown: (1) diatom, (2) algae filaments, (3) Cyclops sp. (female w. egg sac), (4) algae filaments, (5) Nereis sp.
Can you identify any of the above?
