Food microscopy

Microscopy of sourdough starter

My daughter Hannah has made some sourdough – so I thought I’d take a look under the microscope.

Following photos – 32x objective, 2.5x Optovar, brightfield (so equivalent to 80x objective) – except last one which is Phase 2.

I am not sure whether circular bodies are air bubbles or yeast cells or something else….
