Abstract

Microscopy employs the use of microscopes, which are instruments designed to produce magnified visual or photographic images of objects too small to be seen with the naked eye. The goal of the microscope is to accomplish three tasks, namely produce a magnified image of the specimen, separate the details in the image, and render the details visible to the human eye or camera. The development of microscopy revolutionized biology and, to this day, remains an essential tool in science.
