Digital Photomicrography

A MicropticsTM ML1000 system, recently installed in the PIís laboratory, allows digital photomicrography of dry and wet (ethanol submerged) as well as large to small specimens under visible and long-wave ultraviolet light (the latter exploiting the fluorescence property of the scorpion epicuticle). Using AutoMontageTM software, multiple images taken at different, but overlapping spatial planes can be combined through superimposition to circumvent problems with reduced depth-of-field and achieve completely focused images.
