What's in my Blood?

Postby aeloen » Thu Oct 07, 2010 9:06 pm

Hi,

I have recently been playing around with an old microscope and have taken a peek at some blood under it.

I was trying to find some sort of guide on the web to help me identify the various cells in your blood. However I couldn't find anything which looked like something I spotted under the microscope.

These are irregular shaped and had a darker (almost purple) outline and a seemingly translucent 'body' I tried taking a few snaps (take a look at the attachment) - apologies for the poor quality and the colour reproduction sin't brilliant - I just held my camera up to the eye piece..

I'm intrigued!

Thanks!

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

Really?

That's a let down! I was hoping it might be something interesting!

Guess I should learn how to prepare slides properly..

Hello there...
Its quite interesting to see attachments that you have observed but sir they aren't bubbles they would be the defects in your microscope or there might be some defects in blood also quite possible...

Hi,

I doubt these are optical flaws in the microscope - they are not manifest in the same location in the field of view of the viewfinder.

Thanks
