Magnifying Observation

Endocyto Observation

Principle of Endocyto Observation

Cell nuclei are stained with an appropriate dye. The objective lens is then brought into contact with the mucosa to observe the cells of the superficial mucosal layer.
Light emitted by the light guide is sent into the cells and partially returned as scattered light, facilitating cytological observation of the superficial mucosal layer.
