Yes, bacteria can be seen under a light microscope as they are larger than viruses. However, viruses are much smaller and cannot be seen with a light microscope. Specialized electron microscopes are required to visualize viruses.

Is varicella zoster virus gram negative of gram positive?

Gram-positive and gram-negative refer to the Gram stain used to prepare slides of bacteria for viewing under a light microscope. Viruses are too small to see under a light microscope and have to be prepared differently for viewing under an electron microscope. So the answer to your question is neither


Who Bacteria or viruses invisible to the naked eye?

Bacteria are visible. The plaque on your teeth, or such foods as cheese is mostly bacteria, and you can see it. Though, these are millions of bacteria in a clump, and you can only see the clump, not the individual bacterium. So, if you are looking at one bacterum, only the largest bacterium can be seen with the naked human eye, since they are single-celled organisms. However, for most bacterium, you need visual enhancers, such as a microscope, to see a single specimine, because most types of bacteria are too small for the naked human eye.


What type of microscope would you need to see detailed images of an internal structure of a bacterium a light microscope or an electron microscope?

Bacteria are generally very small - so you would need an electron microscope to see them in any detail. Under a light microscope you would probably only be able to see the overall shape.


A. bacteria b. viruses c. algae d. protozoa...Which type of microorganism in the pond water is colorless but still large enough to see in the bright field microscope?

b


How can viruses be seen?

Viruses are incredibly small - much smaller than the smallest of bacteria, even though many millions of bacteria could fit on a pinhead. Therefore viruses can only be seen with the help of a very powerful microscope such as a scanning ellectron microscope.

How does the electron microscope permit scientists to see viruses?

Viruses are very small and can be considered ultramicroscopic. We were not able to see them with the best light microscopes as we could bacteria (prokaryotes). We have to use an electron microscope to see them as they are that small. This was not available until recently.


Why must an election microscope be used to see a viruses?

Because Viruses are very small... Even smaller than bacteria... They are so small that they cannot be seen by any ordinary light microscope ! hence You Need To Use An Electron Microscope!


Is viruses are smaller than bacteria?

yeah, viruses are smaller then bacteria . both of these are small and cannot be spotted by the naked eye. bacteria - they are single-celled organisms that can replicate themselves (duplicate themselves) viruses - in contrast, contain a piece of genetic material that is encapsulated by a protein coat (protected by a protein coat).


What is the differences between a compound and electron microscope?

The compound microscope is a light microscope that uses light to "see" microbes. Viruses are too small.The electron microscope uses electrons to "see" microbes or viruses.


What is a good sentence with the word microscope in it?

A good sentence with the word 'microscope' in it might be; I studied the strangely active bacteria under my microscope.


Types of microorganisms can be seen in a light microscope?

Bacteria are the smallest of microorganisms that are visible under a light microscope. A light microscope can see things as small as 0.2 micrometres!

Are bacteria too small to see without a microscope?

Bacteria are too small to see without a microscope. WAY too small.


Why are we not able to see viruses viruses with compound light microscopes we use is the science lab?

Becoz they r too smaller than bacteria and they examined in electron microscope(TEM&SEM)


Is it true or false that Leeuwenhoek's observed every type of microbe except protozoa and viruses?

Viruses are very small and can be considered ultramicroscopic. We were not able to see them with the best light microscopes as we could bacteria (prokaryotes). We have to use an electron microscope to see them as they are that small. This was not available until recently. Leeuwenhoek's microscope was not strong enough to see such small things.
