I know I can see individual strands of bacteria at 100x with a microscope.
My question is this what magnification do I need to see both a cell and
its nucleus--that is, for a fairly large cell--200x, 500x? In our very
basic lab, we have microscopes up to 100x. Are microscopes with higher
ranges of magnifacation common in working labs?
Could I see the nucleus with the standard microscope, or can one only see
the dark outline of the nucleus with an electron microscope?
