Disseminated intravascular coagulation
Differential Interference Contrast viewing which is the same as Nomarski A mode of transmitted light microscopy that enhances differences of refractive index in samples A very good way of looking a transparent unstained colorless cells/samples DIC also improves resolution, contrast and reduces depth of view compared to conventional wide field microscopy, but not nearly as well as confocal imaging On the Leica Confocal DIC imaging may be performed while confocal scanning This is a good way of localizing fluorescent labels relative to a conventional view of the cell
