Definitions of DARK GROUND EXAMINATION
Sort: Oldest first
An apparatus making visible very minute particles, even one millicrom or one millionth of a millimeter. This is effected by means of an intense lateral illumination, the object refracting the light and showing as dark spots on a dark field. It is used to examine fresh specimens of the serous exudation from syphilitic lesions for the Spiroclieta pallida.
