Microscopy question
    #2057562 - 10/30/03 04:51 PM (14 years, 26 days ago)

I'm not sure if this is in the right forum since it doesnt involve cultivation directly so please feel free to move it.
I've been having some trouble locating some spores in a solution I just got and was wondering two things. Would a gram stain perhaps make the spores more visible or is there any other sort of procedure or reagants that will dye the spores?

Spores are like you say "microscopic", and very hard to see to the naked eye unless in great amount(clumps?). If theyre in a solution in a syringe, try and see a slight tint of color(purple?) on the walls of the syringe.

No clue about staining or dying the spores. --

I know that they are too small too see with the naked eye, I was trying to find them under a microscope at a magnification of 2000x
