25. The lever at the right is used to open and close the iris diaphragm and adjust the amount of light entering the specimen. The practical limit to magnification with a light microscope is around 1300X. Although higher magnifications are possible, image clarity is more difficult to maintain as the magnification increases. Clarity of an image is called resolution (Figure 4-5). The limit of resolution (or resolving power) is an actual measurement of how far apart two points must be in order for the microscope to view them as being separate.

Brasiliensis and N. asteroides are opportunistic pathogens) are partially acid-fast. Oocysts of coccidian parasites, such as Cryptosporidium and Isospora, are also acid-fast. Because so few organisms are acid-fast, the acid-fast stain is run only when infection by an acid-fast organism is suspected. Acid-fast stains are useful in identification of acid-fast bacilli (AFB) and rapid, preliminary diagnosis of tuberculosis (with greater than 90% predictive value from sputum samples). It also can be performed on patient samples to track the progress of antibiotic therapy and determine their degree of contagiousness.

It also can be performed on patient samples to track the progress of antibiotic therapy and determine their degree of contagiousness. A prescribed number of microscopic fields is examined and the number of AFB is determined and reported using a standard scoring system (Table 6-1). ⅷ Principle The presence of mycolic acids in the cell walls of acid-fast organisms is the cytological basis for this differential stain. Mycolic acid is a waxy substance that gives acid-fast cells a higher affinity for the primary stain and resistance to decolorization by an acid alcohol solution.
