DarkFieldMicroscopy · Darkfield Microscope Medical Analysis
Description: This is a group for dark-field and phase contrast medical/veterinary microscopists that are interested in sharing their ideas and experiences about "fresh" fluid analysis, though all forms of traditional clinical microscope analysis are welcomed. In fact, I would like to extend a special invitation to medical technologists/hematologists that are interested in dark field examination. I feel that in order for dark-field work to become a valued diagnostic procedure, there has to be a close relationship and validation to what is observed via dark-field to what has been observed via the current popular clinical techniques---similar to how Gitte S. Jensen, Ph.D., Immunologist, Cancer Researcher has evaluated darkfield with fluorescence microscopy, flow cytometry, or molecular methods. We must raise darkfield microscopy above the inept commercialism that seems to have gripped this science of late with its accompanying antiquated myths and unscientific notions about unproven qualities of commonly observed darkfield particles. Darkfield is but another tool in our arsenal to medically evaluate a being's state of health: no more, no less.
Since many of the microscopy groups found at yahoo, belittle the concepts of Royal Rife, Gaston Naessens, Dr. Virginia Livingston-Wheeler, Dr. Eleanor Alexander-Jackson, Dr. Florence Siebert, and a host of others that have dealt into the study of pathogens not easily observed under traditional bright field microscopical techniques. I hope this group will offer an open, yet a critical investigative mind-set to this art and science; may this group act as a very much needed outlet for further study, dialog, and advancement of this form of ultra-microscopy.
