Everything can be studied in a microscope

Even snow crystals may be preserved and kept forever. This one fell on my terrace Dec. 28 2010. Selv snøkrystaller kan bevares og fotograferes i mikroskop. Denne falt ned på terrassen min 28 Desember 2010.

How I became a scientist

This image was taken in Gausdal, Norway in 1963 during search for the chromosome number of Campanula barbata, a rare plant species in Norway, belonging to the same family as common harebells. A complete, but primitive chromosome lab was set up at its growing sites. We managed to detect meiotic stages just at the right moment making comparishions of cyto-genetics with plants from other European sites possible.
The microscope used was a gift from my father, a physician and Polyclinical Department Head at the University Psyciatric Clinic. I got interested in chromosomes as early as in 1953. My family lived then in a suburb outside Oslo next to a small botanicaL experimental field.
A botanist studying cyto-genetics of arctic poppies  learned me to stain to stain chromosomes in pollen-mother cells in division with DNA-specific stains at the same time J.D. Watson and Francis Crick presented their DNA-structure model in Nature. How this was related to chromosomes was only superficially known, but the so-called Feulgen staining was then widely used.
 In school I was interested in biology, chemistry and physics, found parts of mathematics a little boring, started university studies in 1958, my dr.thesis in microbiology in from 1971. I see now that this was far ahead of current knowledge at that time.
I had invented a simple method for staining chromosomes in so called filamentous fungi and discovered that mitosis in Penicillium is intranuclear, strongly differing from animal or plant mitosis. I also discovered a new cell organelle, "The Centriolar Plaque". Most Penicillia have four chromosomes (haploid stage). More than 30 years passed before my conclusions were confirmed by socalled puls-gel electrophoresis.
I am very interested in vintage cars, have had a number of beautiful Mercedeses and is a member of the Mercedes-Benz Club.  I also own a Tesla S 85 2014 mod. car. My most important contribution to science ever is this: (maybe you have to retype this link to activate it)

Thank you for information. In the mean time I bought a mikroskop and could see spirochaets. Is phase contrast or darkfield the better method for visualising ?

Dear Dr I've noticed that on some occasions blood platelets appear to have attached to RBC's and then on a different occasion they move independently, perhaps

Hello,
is the method to find Borrelia in blood a fake?
Best regards

No, they can be detected in the same preparations with species-or strain specific fluorescent strains that only bind Borrelia. Several strains are now known.

Takk for telefonsamtale om Fjordgløtt, Nøtterøy.
Sender brevene Fylkesmanen og Miljødirektoratet har skrevet, helst med e-post.
Hvilken e-post adr?

Hi Morten!
I'm an IB student at Lillestrøm VGS, and I was wondering if I could get ahold of you via phone or Email. I want your help to write my EE on Mycetozoa

Hei. Takk for hyggelig prat sist pr tlf. Kunne du ringt meg igjen. Har noen spørsmål til vedrørende nylige bilder/mikroskopering av blodet mitt.

Hei,jeg fikk flåttbitt for ca 10 år siden med rød ring rundt bittet.Ønsker å få analysert blodet da prøvene mine har vert negative.

Hei! Jeg kjøpte et stereomikroskop til ungene for et år siden. Utrolig gøy for både barn og voksne. Finnes det noen bøker eller nettsider for å få ideer?
