μBrews – Microscopy in the Brewery

Welcome to the home of my video series on how to use a microscope in the home or craft brewery. This is a 10-part series, with episodes released every Monday, Wednesday and Friday starting on February 10, 2020. The goal of this video series is to teach brewery microscopy from the ground up. The first five videos in the series concentrate on understanding and properly using your microscope. The final five videos then show a range of microscopy-based assays that are useful methods to employ in your brewery.

Season 1

µBrews Episode 1 – A Brief Tour of a Light Microscope

In this video I will take you on a quick tour of a microbiological light microscope. In this video I will trace the light path to show how your sample is illuminated and imaged, all while explaining what the different microscope components do, and what they are called.

A more detailed description of microscope components and how to select a microscope for your brewery can be found at my blog: www.suigenerisbrewing.com/index.php/2019/04/21/choosing-a-microscope-for-you-yeast-lab/
