  • Analytical light microscopy encompasses any type of microscopical work that provides information about a sample beyond observation in a brightfield view. The applications of microscopy in the forensic sciences are many and diverse because of the microscopeÎ│s ability to detect, resolve, and image even the smallest items of evidence. Many types of sophisticated analyses can be conducted on the smallest of samples, often without alteration or destruction. As a result, microscopes continue to be indispensable in all forensic disciplines involving the natural sciences.
