Description:This 1960 historic photograph depicted a Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Dedication Ceremony taking place, celebrating the installation of a new electron microscope in a laboratory setting. Standing left to right, attendees of the ceremony included Dr. Barney, Dr. Kavclau, Dr. Flemming, and Dr. Cooper.
Instead of a beam of light, the electron microscope uses a beam of electrons to visualize the ultrastructural details of a specimen. Also, due to its vastly improved powers of resolution, the EM can deliver magnifications of 2 million times, whereas, light microscopy provides a far lesser degree of magnification of only 2 thousand times.
