LSM 700 Basic Operation
Loading a slide (#1.5 cover slides are the best)
- Set the objective to 10x using the touch pad on the microscope (recommended to always focus first on 10x – as the objectives are parfocal you can then go up in magnification as necessary while remaining in focus).
- Click on load button on knob attached to microscope [Microsope] [Load position]
- Tilt transmitted light source back by placing one hand on the back side of the base of the eyepieces and one hand on the white part of the transmitted light source.
