Microscope slides are made in different designs for different purposes. Typically microscope slides are glass composition with standard sizing.
These microscope slides also come as plain, ready-to-use slides or pre-made educational slides for viewing and comparison. They become a great self-study assistance tool and are available in many different topics.
It's a good idea to keep a reasonable stock of microscope slides to account for breakages and special purpose uses.
Also having the different style microscope slides available for special purpose testing becomes essential in any scientific business or research facility. If a pathology clinic or similar finds themselves short of stock, it may delay essential results and put lives at risk. Buy microscope slides online today and save.
The microscope is an essential instrument for all modern biological studies in schools, colleges, laboratories and universities.
The well prepared microscope slide is a most important means of demonstration which can be examined at different magnifications so that increasing amount of detail can be resolved. In this sense it is inexhaustible.
You have seen that cells have a variety of shapes depending on their function. Most animal and plant cells are about 0.005 mm to 0.02 mm in diameter. However, the longest cell is a type of nerve cell found in the giant squid and can be up to 7 metres in length.
Bacteria are unicellular organisms and have a much simpler cell structure than animal and plant cells. A bacteria cell is usually smaller than other cells, ranging in size from 0.0005 mm to 0.003 mm.
Bacteria are usually classified by their shape. There are rod-shaped ones (bacilli), spherical ones (cocci) and spirals (spirilli). Bacteria have a cell wall, but no nucleus. This is the major difference between a bacterial cell and a plant or animal cell.
Basic component of the program are the A, B, C and D series comprising of 175 microscope slides The four series are arranged systematically and constructively compiled, so that each enlarges the subject line of the proceeding one.
They contain slides of typical microorganisms, of cell division and of embryonic developments as well as of tissues and organs of plants, animals and man. Each of the slides has been carefully selected on the basis of its instructional value.
LIEDER prepared microscope slides are made in our laboratories under scientific control They are the product of long experience in all spheres of preparation techniques Microtome sections are cut by highly skilled staff, cutting technique and thickness of the sections are adjusted to the objects.
Out of the large number of staining techniques we select those ensuring a clear and distinct differentiation of the important structures combined with best permanency of the staining.
Generally, these are complicated multicolor stainings. LIEDER prepared microscope slides are delivered on best glasses with ground edges of the size 26 x 76 mm (1x3").
Our supply of microscope slide sets has been considerably enlarged and rearranged. This list shall help you in the selection of your slides.
School sets. Conceived as structural series, they give a survey of those fields of biology which are of interest for teaching in schools. The sets are also component of our ..Multimedia Program of Microscopic Biology".
Comprehensive sets are bigger and sum up larger fields. Basic and supplementary sets add to each other and treat the same topic.
Detail sets are usually smaller and treat special subjects in detail, e.g. systems of organs, representative and typical members of important groups of animals and plants, physiological and ecological subjects.
