To support my investigation into Bob Beck and his protocol on blood electification (see link in my sig), I decided to splash out and buy a microscope
capable of viewing live blood with a dark field condenser.
I'm a complete noob with this kind of thing but find it bloody fascinating
Here's a pic:
Now, first thing I'd like to know if anyone is into this kind of thing, is how to correctly take a sample?
Currently, I swab my finger, prick with a needle and drop some blood on a slide, cover with cover-slip and pop under scope.
I find that if I don's squish down on the cover slip, the thickness of blood makes viewing impossible, plus the cells are all clumped in Rouleaux.
However, I'm wondering if by squishing too hard, I may be damaging some cells, which will make it appear the blood is not so healthy?!?
And yes, I know I need more practice in centering the DF condenser. I'm working on it.
Any comments, help, ideas, questions, please post.
