Sites with Microscope images

There are many on-line collections of images taken with a microscope. It would be impossible to collect them all, but the links in this table provide a cross section of different imaging modes and subjects. Some sites now include videos of time-lapse or 3D rotations.

Please be respectful of the copyrights of the image owners if you choose to use any of these images.
