Microscopy for Studying Microbes

Microscopy opened up an invisible world of microbes not previously known. With
improvements in technology over the years, newer microscopy techniques were developed that
have better resolution and magnification. Light and electron microscope are the two main
branches of microscopes under which most microscopes in use today fall. Two-photon
microscope, phase-contrast microscope, confocal scanning laser microscope, brightfield
microscope, fluorescence microscope, differential interference contrast microscope, and
darkfield microscope are all examples of light microscopes (Müller-Reichert & Verkade, 2014).
The two basic types of electron microscopes include scanning electron microscope (SEM) and
transmission electron microscope (TEM). Both light and electron microscopy involve use of
radiation which interacts with the specimen and is refracted, reflected, or diffracted and
thereafter collected to create an image (Müller-Reichert & Verkade, 2014). The functional
