A Video Guide to Differential Interference Contrast (DIC)
Our Senior Product Specialist, Geoff Ingram guides you through the basics of DIC (Differential Interference Contrast); what DIC is, how DIC works and how to set DIC up on an upright microscope like the Scientifica SliceScope.
Differential Interference Contrast (DIC) is a microscopy technique that introduces contrast to images of specimens which have little or no contrast when viewed using brightfield microscopy. The images produced using DIC have a pseudo 3D-effect, making the technique ideal for electrophysiology experiments.
