KU to receive $2 million microscope

August 12, 2006


A $2 million microscope coming to Kansas University this year will allow researchers to see things most people will never see, thanks to magnifications 500,000 times that of the naked eye.

Rep. Dennis Moore, D-Kan., announced in late June he'd earmarked $1 million in federal funds toward KU's purchase of the microscope.

It will be used for researching subjects ranging from alternative fuels to viruses and vaccines. It also will aid study of the connectivity between human tissue and artificial limbs.
