LP40224-5   Microscopic observation
Microscopy is a technique that uses microscopes to examine very small objects, not seen by the naked eye. There are three well-known branches of microscopy: optical, electron and scanning probe microscopy. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License.

LP6760-5   Wet preparation
A wet preparation or wet mount is used to identify the cause of vaginosis, a general term for infections of the vagina. A drop of vaginal discharge is placed on a slide with a drop of liquid -usually water--which is then examined microscopically as an unstained wet mount or as a Gram-stained slide. The refractive index of the water improves the image quality. Wet mounts generally cannot be stored since the water evaporates. Glycerol or immersion oil can be used instead of water. Bacterial vaginosis, candidiasis and trichomoniasis are common diseases which may be diagnosed through a wet preparation. [Lab Tests Online Conditions:vaginitis/start/2] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
