  • (n) research with the use of microscopes


  1. Using the standard smear-microscopy method can be acutely frustrating: sometimes a patient must be tested three, seven, even 10 times before a positive diagnosis can be made.
  2. The tests included photo- and electron microscopy, X rays, spectroscopy, ultraviolet fluorescence, thermography and chemical analyses.
  3. The usual method of preparing microorganisms or viruses for electron microscopy is to dry them at ordinary temperatures before putting them in the instrument.
