Darkfield Microscopy

Blood Cell Microscopy Analysis is done by using a Darkfield phase contrast microscope. 
In order to gain greater insight into your health, we perform live blood analysis using a Darkfield phase contrast microscope. This analysis is done while you are having your visit, which allows us to give you immediate feedback on what we see in terms of blood health, and how this can be affecting your immune, nutritional, metabolic and other health challenges.

A Darkfield phase contrast microscope is a specially designed research tool which enables illumination of otherwise transparent specimens to become visible as various shades of gray. By using a video monitor, this image is further enhanced for viewing. This helps us to see the finer structure and detail that are difficult to see via traditional methods.

In the sample below, (click on the image to see a larger version) we provide an image of several blood samples. The healthy sample which is furthest left, top row, in each section. The first sample (upper left) of strong and healthy blood shows the red cells to be round, evenly shaped in freely floating plasma. The plasma itself is clear and with few fat globules, plaque and uric acid. There are no signs of clotting, bacteria, fungal, or other foreign matter and stress. This is the kind of blood a person SHOULD have flowing through their circulatory system.
