microscopy

[mī′kräs·kə·pē]
(optics)
The interpretive application of microscope magnification to the study of materials that cannot be properly seen by the unaided eye.

microscopy

The use of microscopes to view ultra-small objects. Optical microscopes use a light source from below or to the side of the object being magnified. For example, in the medical field, there are numerous optical techniques, many of which require altering the samples being observed.

Scanning electron microscopes are able to magnify objects smaller than .2 micrometers, which is smaller than the wavelength of light. Scanning probe microscopes can image down to the molecular level (see AFM and STM).

Actualmente estos hongos pertenecen a la familia Arthrodermataceae, la cual incluye 9 generos, filogenetica y morfologicamente bien definidos (5), dentro de los cuales Microsporum y Trichophyton son los responsables de la mayoria de las infecciones descritas en animales de compania y exoticos, tales como perros, gatos, conejos, cuyes, hurones y erizos (1-4,6-13).
Seven fungal genera were isolated from this study; Tricophyton, Rhizopus, Saprolegnia, Mucor, Peniciilum, Microsporum and Alternaria.
Besides, other fungal strains observed in the present study, such as Trichophyton, Microsporum, Chryosporum and Penicillium species, were also reported in previous literature as potential pathogen.25
In nonhuman primates (NHP) Microsporum and Trichophyton are usually the genera responsible for causing this pathology (BAGNALL & GRUNBERG, 1972; BIELITZKI, 1998; GIBSON, 1998).

Los dermatofitos comprenden tres generos: Epidermophyton, Trichophyton y Microsporum. Son queratinofilicos en humanos y animales y estan usualmente restringidos a capas cornificadas de la epidermis, sin invadir mas alla de ella (1).
Thus, this study aimed to investigate the in vitro antifungal activity of the hexahydropyrimidine derivatives against the filamentous fungi, which can cause dermatomycosis, for example, Microsporum canis, Microsporum gypseum, Trichophyton mentagrophytes, Trichophyton rubrum, Fusarium oxysporum, and Epidermophyton floccosum, and to observe any morphological changes in these fungi by using scanning electron microscopy (SEM).
Anthropophilic and zoophilic dermatophytes from the genera Trichophyton, Microsporum, and Epidermophyton are primarily responsible for human fungal infections.
