Microscopes are the instruments used to view minute objects.
These objects can be microorganisms, tissues or living cells, etc.
There are different types of microscopes like simple, complex, electron microscope, etc.
And these microscopes are used mostly in research or disease diagnosis every day by scientists and healthcare personnel.
But let us see these uses in detail.
Why do Scientists Use Microscopes
1. Identification of bacteria.
There are many types of bacteria based on shape, colony characters, structure, etc. Bacterial identification is necessary in case of identification infection by bacteria, in rDNA technology to isolate desired bacteria, in bacterial cultures, etc. By using a compound microscope, bacterial colonies can be identified and separated for further use over agar gel plates.
