Description

  • Set of 50 prepared slides, including plants, insects, and animal tissues, for use in biological education
  • Samples preserved in cedar wood oil and sealed with a coverslip to preserves specimen and prevent contamination
  • Labeling provides specimen identification
  • Slides are composed of optical glass for clear viewing
  • Set comes in fitted wooden storage box to prevent breakage and ease handling
  • The AmScope PS50A microscope slide set includes 50 prepared slides of a variety of biology and pathology slides used in
    basic biology education. The samples are preserved in cedar wood oil and sealed with a coverslip to preserve specimens
    and prevent contamination. Labeling on each slide identifies specimens. Slides are composed of optical glass for clear
    viewing and are 3 x 1 x 0.4 inches/75 x 25 x 1mm (H x W x D, where H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to
    highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to
    back.) The set comes in a fitted wooden case to prevent breakage and ease handling.

    Set A slide specimens include ascarid egg (whole mount), Aspergillus (whole mount), cabbage (Hydrilla verticillata,
    longitudinal section), coprinus mushroom set (cross section), cotton stem (cross section), Cucurbita stem (longitudinal
    section), dandelion fuzz (whole mount), dense connective tissue (section), dog cardiac muscle (longitudinal section),
    dog esophagus (cross section), dog skeletal muscle (longitudinal and cross section), dog small intestine (section), dog
    smooth muscle (longitudinal and cross section), dog squamous epithelium (whole mount), dog stomach (section), earthworm
    (cross section), honeybee leg (whole mount), honeybee mouth parts (whole mount), honeybee wings (whole mount), housefly
    mouth parts (whole mount), human blood (smear), hydra (longitudinal section), Hydrilla verticillata leaf (whole mount),
    leaf of winter jasmine (cross section), Lilium anther (cross section), Lilium ovary (cross section), locust wing (whole
    mount), loose connective tissue (whole mount), mantis wing (whole mount), nymphasa (spongy tissue) (cross section),
    nymphasa aqustio stem (cross section), onion epidermis (whole mount), penicillium (whole mount), pig motor nerve (whole
    mount), pine leaf (cross section), pine pollen (whole mount), pine stem (cross section), pumpkin stem (cross section),
    rabbit artery and vein (cross section), rabbit hyaline cartilage (section), rabbit lymph node (section), rabbit spinal
    cord (cross section), rabbit testis (section), stomata-vicia faba leaf (whole mount), sunflower stem (cross section),

    Microscopes are instruments used to enhance the resolution of an object or image. Types include compound, stereo, or
    digital. Compound microscopes use a compound optical system with an objective lens and an eyepiece. Stereo microscopes
    show object depth in a three-dimensional image. Digital microscopes are used to display an image on a monitor, rather
    than looking through a lens. Microscopes can have monocular (one), binocular (two), or trinocular (three) eyepieces,
    with varying magnification abilities. Magnification ability refers to the size of an image. Resolution, also known as
    resolvant power, refers to the clarity of the image. The interaction between field of view (FOV), numerical aperture
    (NA), and working distance (WD) determines resolution. Microscopes can control magnification through a fixed focus, or
    through a range of adjustments. They can also utilize LED, fluorescent, and mirror light sources to help control viewing
    capabilities. Microscopes are widely used in education, lab research, biology, metallurgy, engineering, chemistry,
    manufacturing, and in the medical, forensic science, and veterinary industries.

    United Scope manufactures microscopy equipment and accessories under the brand name AmScope. The company, founded in
    1996, is headquartered in Irvine, CA.
