minimum microscope power needed to view spores?
    #3595695 - 01/07/05 10:40 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I'm sorry if this is the wrong place, I didnt know where to put it. What is the minimum magnification I would need to check my spores for contams? Now I know I will have to know what Im looking for but for starters, i need a microscope. Can anyone help?

400 is the minimum really....
1000 is good.

I think I was mistaken on something, By using a microscope, would I be able to tell if my syringes or prints are contam'd? I was under the impression that this would be a viable way of doing so but after reading another post somewhere, i don't know if this is true.

Yes fungal, and bacterial contamination can be seen with a microscope when viewing spores.

600-1000X magnification is best. Phase contrast would help with spore ornamentation.
