Diatom Lab Intro (Ocean Sunrise)
 

The 10 reasons Diatom Lab preparations are so innovative:


Diatom Lab's prepared microscope slides of Micromanipulated Diatoms and Radiolarians will last for generations, and are produced with modern, state-of-the art techniques and mounting media. We have greatly improved on the “antique” processes of mounting and arranging Diatoms and other microscopic specimens, in order to meet the requirements of modern high performance microscopes, for a truly extraordinary visual experience!


REASON 1:
Our Micromanipulated Diatoms are guaranteed to be fixed directly to the UNDERSIDE of the cover glass (and not as-is common, on the microscope slide) for maximum resolution and contrast!
The reason for this: microscope objective performance drops quickly noticeably as the specimen distance from the cover glass increases. Microscope objective lenses are designed to be optimally corrected for objects located immediately below the coverslip! (source: Hiraoka Y., Sedat J. W. and Agard, D. A. (1990) Determination of three-dimensional imaging properties of a light microscope system, Biophysical Journal, 57, 325-333).
Moreover Oil immersion objectives are brightest at superficial depths,
consider the following graph (source: Olympus https://www.olympus-lifescience.com)



Furthermore, mounting specimens to the UNDERSIDE of the cover glass allows use of high numerical aperture objective such as oil immersion objectives, even those with very short working distance, such 63x/1,4 or 100x/1,4 apochromats for the ultimate in resolution and contrast!

REASON 2: We use the proprietary DIATOM³ (DIATOM CUBED) high refractive index microfiltered diatom mountant with a refractive index of over 1.7 and excellent chemical stability!

REASON 3: We use the proprietary NANO-ADHESIVE. Diatoms are attached to the underside of the cover glass by means of Diatom Lab's unique NANO-ADHESIVE, which is invisible even in phase contrast, darkfield illumination, differential interference contrast (DIC) and oblique illumination! This ensures all the finest Diatom details such as areolae, poroids, striae and so-on, are always perfectly clean, regardless of the technique used, with the additional benefit that there are no traces, stains or swipe-marks caused by fixatives typically seen on some older preparations. Futhermore, our NANO-ADHESIVE is also invisible to scanning electron microscopes (SEMs), and is therefore used to obtain a clean background for our SEM specimen preparations. See the test image below and at this link, performed by Purdue University Fort Wayne on Diatom Lab's preparations that contain Diatoms fixed on glass using Diatom Lab's NANO-ADHESIVE (without mountant and cover glass to permit SEM imaging):


REASON 4: Custom optical quality cover glass is used in all our Diatom preparations. Our coverslips are manufactured to strict tolerances in Germany specifically for Diatom Lab with the following benefits: High transparency, optical homogeneity (freedom from inclusions, bubbles, streaks, etc.), high transmission, excellent flatness; chemical stability, and a refraction index adjusted for microscopy.

REASON 5: Diatom Lab's microscope slides are prepared taking into account the cover glass thickness suitable for each preparation, in fact:
Using the correct coverslip thickness can greatly increase your ability to get the most information out of your sample using an optical microscope
(source: Douglas W. Cromey, M.S. (2017) The importance of #1.5 thickness coverslips for Microscopy,  UA Microscopy Alliance, The University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ)

REASON 6: Only the best, cleanest, unbroken specimens are hand selected, and all slides are quality checked on our in-house Zeiss Axio Imager.A2 research microscope before shipment. Diatom Lab offers perfectly cleaned, selected Diatoms, Radiolarians and other microscopic objects that are micromanipulated paying attention to their ideal positioning to show off the best features. All current and fossil Diatoms and Radiolarians are cleaned in our laboratory using innovative, and professional techniques.

REASON 7: Diatom lab's Diatoms and Radiolarians can be observed and admired even with a modestly priced microscope (contrast enhancement techniques such as phase contrast, darkfield illumination and differential interference contrast are not strictly necessary) thanks to Diatom Lab's strict quality procedures.

REASON 8: Diatom Lab's special techniques and Diatom Cubed mountant ensure that Diatoms and Radiolarians will never change their original position during shipping or storage. In other words, you will never see "floating" Diatoms and Radiolarians.

REASON 9: Diatom Lab's unique ringing cements are resistant to the most common immersion oils used in optical microscopy.

REASON 10: Diatom Lab's Preparations are guaranteed free of bubbles and impurities.

More about diatoms:
Diatoms and Radiolarians are among the most fascinating microscopic forms to observe under a microscope!
Their beautiful and symmetrical shapes can lead us to reflect upon the wonder of Nature, leaving an impression of hypnotic beauty, magic, mathematics, mystery, spirituality, fun and awe. Some never tire of viewing favourite diatoms, revisiting them many times over the years.
Diatoms are also essential to life on Earth, and are classed as Phytoplankton, which contribute an estimated 50 to 85 percent of the oxygen in Earth’ atmosphere, playing a major role in the regulation of atmospheric CO2 and forming an essential component of the food chain.

Owning Diatom Shop's state-of-the-art Diatoms or Radiolarians microscope slides is like owning all this, the art in a hand-made piece, the antique and modern, and a piece of the small and big powerful Microcosm. Diatom Lab is like a 19th century scientific laboratory company operating in the 21st century from many points of view, but our state-of-the-art microscope slides containing micromanipulated Diatoms and Radiolarians are produced with innovative, modern, proprietary, unique, professional techniques. We have greatly improved the old procedures of arranging Diatoms and other microscopic objects in order to meet the high requirements of the most modern and sophisticated microscopy (please read the important Technological innovations in the table). Diatom Lab was created to show the beauty, importance and power of microscopic nature to amateurs and scientists during an era of many superficial values. Diatom Lab is a visionary project where Science meets Art.


Diatoms (Synonyms: Bacillariae or Bacillariophyta) belong to the Class Bacillariophyceae and can be divided into two major groups that are distinguished by the shape of the frustule (the siliceous parts of the diatom cell wall): the centric diatoms (radially symmetric) and the pennate diatoms (bilaterally symmetric).
Frustule is composed by two parts, the larger epitheca and the smaller hypotheca: the epitheca overlaps the hypotheca similar to a pill case.
The valve face of the diatom frustule is beautifully ornamented with pores (areolae), spines, processes, hyaline (=unornamented) areas and other distinguishing features that help in the identification!
Many Genera of living Diatoms are known, with an estimated 100000 extant species! Here is the very long Genus list, that includes both recent and fossil species:
