Magnification Comparison

Date: 19th Jun 2018
Place: Life Science Lab, St Xavier’s College (Autonomous), Mumbai
Description: The magnification of the assembled Foldscope (140X) was compared with that of the standard compound light microscope (10X and 40X lenses). Permanent slides were viewed. A slight aberration was observed at the edges of the field of view of the Foldscope possibly due to the fish-eye lens used. Also, this was one of the first few observations, so we were still getting accustomed to handling the Foldscope.
