A laser holographic microscope (LHM) is investigated experimentally. The standard slide of Parascaris Univalens Iarva (ascaris) is studied. Comparison of the pictures of the same ascaris cell, observed by the LHM and high-performance Nikon conventional optical microscope (COM) 10×100/1.25 with immersion oil and green filter indicates that the both microscopes provide diffraction – limited 3-D spatial resolution, but dramatically different contrast. Thus, the LHM gives much more subcellular information.
