Example starting position of objective.
Example slide scanning directions.
  • First, look at each microscopy slide by eye, to plan the microscopy screening so as to not miss peripheral fragments.
  • Have a systematic direction of screening through microscopy slides, such as from top left to bottom right as seen in the microscope. When two-way mirrored, the starting position of the microscope slide is then with the objective pointing at bottom right.

Artifacts

In microscopy, an artifact is an apparent structural detail that is caused by the processing of the specimen and is thus not a legitimate feature of the specimen. Major artifacts to account for include:
