Other links

These are other websites that are neither imaging facilities, nor mentioned elsewhere on my site that I have found useful. It’s a work in progress …

    1. http://microscopist.net
    2. Microscopy Primer is a major site. It will tell you all (or nearly all) that you’ve ever wanted to know about microscopy but were afraid to ask. The style of its illustrations and java tutorials are very recognisable. Be aware that you may have to drill down to find the wood amongst the trees in this vast site. From this site you will find two useful downloadable PDFs
    3. There is also a Basics of LM Imaging PDF from Imaging & Microscopy sponsored by Olympus
