OPTICAL ABERRATIONS DETECTOR. It's a very useful Diatom Lab microscope slide that detects optical aberrations - even the most imperceptible ones - in light microscopy, such as: a) Curvature of field (the image appears sharp and crisp in the center or on the edges of the viewfield but not both); b) Distortion (changes in the shape of the image); c) Barrel distortion and Pincushion distortion; d) Spherical aberration (the specimen image appears hazy or blurred and slightly out of focus); e) Chromatic aberration (presence of color fringes at the edges of the borders); f) Astigmatism (the ideal circular point image blurs into a diffuse circle, elliptical patch, or line). Thanks to this unique microscope slide, you can easily test and compare your objectives, eyepieces, condensers, phototubes, microscope cameras, and magnification changers! This is an amazing microscope slide in the center of which there are, incredibly, 90.000 microscopic squares having a side of 10 µm (ten micrometres or microns) and 10 µm apart! These microscopic squares also form nine larger squares useful in case of low magnification (see the page "Optical Aberrations Detector, Centering Device, Micrometers" for better image quality). This slide is excellent for testing macro lenses as well! Click on this link to download the pdf file. All Rights Reserved.

CENTERING DEVICE & MICROMETER GLASS SLIDE. It's an all-in-one microscope slide that incorporates a centering device to center the microscope and the camera and a stage micrometer for microscope calibration. The centering device consists of 25 perfect concentric circles, 50  µm (fifty micrometres or microns) thick and 50 µm apart! It is very useful to center the microscope parts (condenser top lens, field iris diaphragm, prisms of the binocular/trinocular head, etc.) and the microscope camera. (It is advisable to make changes to the microscope only if you are an expert.) The stage micrometer for microscope calibration is a 1 mm Scale with 0,01 mm (10  µm) divisions; the slide can be used in combination with a micrometer eyepiece or a measurement software (for cameras) in order to measure preparations. (See the page "Optical Aberrations Detector, Centering Device, Micrometers" for better image quality.) All Rights Reserved.

MICROSCOPE SLIDES OF SELECTED, MICROMANIPULATED DIATOMS. All micromanipulated Diatoms are guaranteed to be fixed directly to the UNDERSIDE of the custom, optical quality cover glass (and not, as is common, on the microscope slide) for maximum resolution and contrast! The reason for this is that: microscope objective performance drops quickly and 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!

DIATOM TEST SLIDES FOR OPTICAL MICROSCOPES (MICROSCOPE SLIDES OF SELECTED, MICROMANIPULATED TEST DIATOMS). TEST YOUR MICROSCOPE! Venture into the Micro and Nano structures! Diatom Test Slides are extremely useful to: A) compare objectives, condensers, microscopes, and optical microscope illumination techniques such as bright field, oblique illumination, differential interference contrast (DIC), phase contrast, dark field, polarized light, Rheinberg illumination, and Hoffman modulation contrast! B) practice using your microscopes at their highest levels! C) determine the resolving power of your microscope (the resolving power of a microscope is measured by its ability to differentiate two lines or points in an object)! D) examine the variations in contrast and resolution by regulating the condenser aperture diaphragm E) understand the importance of correction collar for minimazing spherical aberration F) examine the variations in resolution by using different wavelengths of light.
All micromanipulated Diatoms are guaranteed to be fixed directly to the UNDERSIDE of the custom, optical quality 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 and 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!

(While in Amphipleura pellucida striae number 37-45 in 10 µm and pores are spaced 0,16 - 0,19 µm apart)
The theoretical limit of resolution of most light microscopes is ∼ 0.2 μm, but these poroids can be detected by the techniques below, thanks to Diatom Cubed high refractive index mountant (refractive index > 1,7).
Suggested techniques: Double immersion (= Oil immersion objective and Oil immersion condenser) and: Polarized light (the polarizers should be oriented perpendicular to each other = maximum level of extinction); or Circular oblique illumination (C.O.L.) with polarized light; or Dark field illumination using an immersion dark field condenser (better 1,2/1,4); or Differential interference contrast (DIC); or UV illumination: in this case highly specialized laboratory facilities are required (it is dangerous for the eyes, it requires the use of special protection devices, accessories and cameras. Please refer to the operating manual of your instruments); or some variants of the Differential interference contrast (such as AVEC-DIC, the Allen Video-enhanced Contrast); or IRC (Interference reflection contrast technique)

Diatom Test Slide of Micromanipulated Pinnularia nobilis
DIATOM TEST SLIDE of Micromanipulated Pinnularia nobilis (Ehrenberg) Ehrenberg
Details to detect: poroids
AVERAGE DISTANCE BETWEEN POROIDS: 0,11 µm (NEW MORE DIFFICULT SAMPLE!), see Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) measurements.
The theoretical limit of resolution of most light microscopes is ∼ 0.2 μm, but these poroids can be detected by the techniques below, thanks to Diatom Cubed high refractive index mountant (refractive index > 1,7).
Recommended microscope objectives: oil-immersion 63 or 100x objectives having a very good or excellent numerical aperture (1,3 or 1,4)
Suggested techniques: Double immersion (= Oil immersion objective and Oil immersion condenser) in: Polarized light (the polarizers should be oriented perpendicular to each other = maximum level of extinction) with possibly oblique illumination; or Immersion dark field condenser (better 1,2/1,4) with Polarized light (the polarizers should be oriented perpendicular to each other = maximum level of extinction)

NEW DIATOMARIUMS: these are the first diatom microscope slides in the world made with this innovative, expensive and accurate technology! Microscope slides of micromanipulated diatom specimens mounted inside a revolutionary new grid with engraved scientific names or numbers. The letters of the species name are 16 µm high and each square internally measures 300 µm x 300 µm. The diatom array and the product & company names sit comfortably in the field of view of every 5x objective.
The New Diatomarium with engraved Scientific names is a COMPENDIUM of the Diatom world: in fact the New Diatomarium includes Recent Marine - Recent Freswater -Fossil Marine - Fossil Freshwater, Centric and Pennate species!

TEST INTEGRATED CIRCUITS for light microscopes in reflected light, stereo microscopes, scanning electron microscopes (SEMs), objectives for macro photography   
Test Integrated Circuit for Reflected light and SEM
Very small integrated circuit (0.75mm X 0.66mm) with many fine details, dry mounted on microscope slide without cover glass. Excellent for testing light microscopes in reflected light, stereo microscopes, scanning electron microscopes (SEMs), objectives for macro photography! This test integrated circuit has been discussed in the following article: Walker D., Exploring the Diatom Lab prepared slide of an integrated circuit chip, Micscape Magazine, April 2020, Issue 289, ISSN 1365 – 070x: "The slide is impeccably prepared / mounted", "In my view the slide is excellent value for money and maintains the high standards set by the Diatom Lab shop (I have a number of the diatom slides)"

STREW DIATOM SLIDES: enjoy the DIATOM SAFARI! Each microscope slide contains dozens, if not hundreds, of strewn cleaned Diatoms that haven't been selected and micromanipulated. All strewn Diatoms are guaranteed to be fixed directly to the UNDERSIDE of the custom optical quality 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!
