Phase contrast microscopy imaging techniques allow normally clear transparent blood cells to appear with increased contrast. This gives the advantage of seeing greater surface detail. Differences in refractive indices of the specimen alter the phase of the light waves. This phase shift is translated into differences in light intensity, effectively allowing better viewing contrast.

In live blood cell analysis, phase contrast microscopy is best used to understand and view the effects of improper nutrition and problems in the body. It allows excellent viewing of the general contour of the blood cells in a manner not possible with other techniques. However, it does not illuminate the fine details as seen in darkfield. It generally is not used to determine the root cause of the body’s problem.
