    Concave slides are perfect for viewing living organisms. The single depression in the center of the 1x 3 glass slide measures .5mm to .8 mm in depth, which allows for viewing without damaging or squashing the organism. They dont dry out as quickly as a regular slide because you are able to include more liquid with your specimen. The slides have rounded edges and are reusable.

    This is one of the best and most complete microscope books Ive ever seen. It is 143 pages of helpful information for any student who is just beginning to work with microscopes. The recommendation by the author is that students read the opening chapters of this book to be able to name the parts of a microscope, focusing, and sample preparation. Chapter one gives the safety guidelines for working with microscopes and the equipment list needed for doing the activities in this book. Chapter two explains light sources, lenses, identifying your microscope, parts of a microscope, and trouble shooting. Chapter three tells about the different types of slides and how to prepare them wet mounts, smear slide, well slide, squash slides, staining a specimen, acetate peel, and permanent mounts. These are the chapters which lay the foundation for the rest of the book.

    Chapters 4-10 offer experiments to practice the skills taught in the first 3 chapters. Students can make their own microtome (instrument used to make thin samples for slides), view finger prints, fibers, crystals, sweat, hair, bug parts, pond water, food, and plant specimens which they will mount themselves. The book includes photomicrographs, pictures through a microscope, so students can compare their slides. Many of the things used in these experiments are from your own home, but additional equipment needed includes: microscope, blank slides, cover slips, tweezers, eye dropper, lens paper, clear plastic ruler, razor knife, nail polish, and scissors. This book would make a very good one semester course for an introduction to microscopes, or you can add it to your curriculum. Either way, microscopes are expensive pieces of equipment and students need to know how to use them correctly. The guidance and information you need are in this book. - Donna

    My eight-year-olds first reaction to this book was an emphatic "Cool!" Brilliant color pictures and graphics welcome you to the world of the microscopic. What would a DNA strand look like if magnified 7 million times? How about greatly magnified parts of plants, insects, and the human body? Find out here. Each section shows amazing color pictures of dramatically magnified objects and organisms. For example, the Plant and Fungi chapter shows a greatly enlarged picture of water plants called desmids and diatoms. Instructions are given for collecting pond or lake water so that you can view the microscopic life in a drop of water. Although much of the book depicts and describes the microscopic world, the latter part of the book is devoted to how microscopes work, from a standard lens microscope to the electron- scanning microscope. Pointers are given for buying a microscope and using advanced techniques for preparing various types of slides and mounts. A wonderful resource for any student interested in the "hidden" world around us. - Jerry

    Part of the Nancy Bs Science Club series, this set pairs a junior microscope with an activity journal for guided observations. The beginner microscope features 30x-400x magnification, LED lighting, a coarse focus knob and a rubber eyepiece cup. There are actually two lights one on the bottom and one on top, so you can use it as a light microscope (for semitransparent slides) and a dissecting microscope (for 3-D objects). Although all plastic, the microscope has a sturdy design and is battery-powered, so you can take it out in the field without worry. While you cant compare this one to an actual compound microscope on optics, it seems to work pretty well for an inexpensive scope, especially in the low magnification range. Several tools are also included with the microscope - four prepared slides, seven blank slides, seven cover slips, a Petri dish, specimen vial, spatula, tweezers, scalpel, stirring rod, test tube and pipette. The 22-page activity journal both acquaints students with how to use the microscope and provides ideas for projects and activities that they can complete while also giving them spaces to record observations. Activities include a variety of subjects, including examining cheek cells, the marks made by various writing utensils, ground spices and more. Please note that the microscope is only battery-powered and requires 3 AA batteries, not included.

    Travel with Ms. Frizzle and her class through the land of microscopy with this lab kit. This kit includes the things that young researchers need to explore the world of tiny things microscope, blank slides, cover slips, tweezers, collecting vial, 20 colorful experiment and instruction cards, prepared slides of fungi and algae, and a data notebook for recording your own scientific observations all packaged in a cool Magic School Bus-shaped box. The microscope operates on 2 AA batteries (not included) and is made of plastic with 100, 300 and 600x magnification. Although that sounds powerful, this is still a toy and doesnt give the quality and clarity of higher priced microscopes. I spent some time looking at the prepared slides and had some difficulty with the viewing on 600x but got a pretty good view with the 100 and 300x settings. Overall this is a good starter set for beginning to explore with Ms. Frizzle. - Donna

    Microscope activity books are great if you already have everything you need to start making your own slides, but what if you dont? Thats why I like this kit. The experiment manual is solid enough to stand on its own - a rarity in most science kits today - and the kit includes everything you need to begin using the microscope, exploring prepared slides, and preparing and making your own slides. The full-color 48-page manual begins by explaining microscope use and care, as well as how to safely make thin slices from specimens using a scalpel or razor blade. Then young scientists are ready to start observing! The following sections focus on viewing cells of different types, including cheek cells, onion skin, onion cells affected by salt, egeria/elodea, various fruits and vegetables, starch from foodstuffs, hydra, pollen grains, salt and sugar crystals, insect wings, insect specimens, mushrooms, root hairs, watermelon water ducts, blades of grass, leaves, hair, nettle hairs, and feathers. Each section provides informational text about the subject viewed, detailed instructions on how to make and mount the specimen, tips on specimen-making techniques, and photos of photographed specimens under the microscope. Since the student will probably not be very proficient at preparing their own slides, several prepared slides are included as examples, and the more difficult-to-make specimens are saved for later in the book. The photos of example specimens are also helpful for beginners. Unlike many microscope kits, this one actually has a fairly decent microscope. It is constructed of metal and plastic microscope and has pretty good focusing ability. Features include: a monocular 10X eyepiece, 4X, 10X and 40X glass objective lenses (for 40X, 100X and 400X total magnification). The microscope includes two bright LED lights, one above and one below the stage. This kit would be a great choice for a microscope study, along with a science curriculum, or just for the interested student, especially if you are not planning on investing in a good-quality microscope in the future. Kit includes the experiment manual, microscope, blank slides, prepared slides, coverslips, tweezers, a dissection needle, a scalpel, a pipette, Petri dish with lid, stain, lens paper, blank labels for slides, and a dust cover for the microscope. Microscope requires 3 AA batteries (not included). - Jess

    In a side-by-side comparison with the Observer IID and the 3000FF, I thought these offered a slight advantage over the Observer, and they were pretty much on-par with the 3000FF model as well. The clarity was excellent, and the illumination was bright and easily adjustable. They were easy-to-use, and I especially loved the mechanical stage on Model AP1510WL (it took me back to the vet school histology lab there for a moment!). Features of both models AP1500 and AP1510 include:

    • - Monocular 45° inclined head
    • - 360° head rotation
    • - 10X wide field eyepiece with built-in pointer
    • - Revolving nosepiece with objectives and click stops
    • - Coaxial coarse and fine focusing with built-in slip clutch
    • - 4X, 10X, 40XR objectives, all DIN achromatic, parfocaled, parcentered, and color-coded
    • - Positive stops to prevent slide damage
    • - adjustable LED illumination
    • - Rechargable battery power and an AC charger

    Both are excellent microscopes, and of excellent quality, but we wanted to offer a more "basic" version and a fancier version to suit both needs. Model AP1500WL includes all the features found in the list, and features a stage with spring-loaded clips to hold the slide, as well as a 0.65 N.A. condenser, and a 6-hole disc diaphragm. Model AP1510WL offers more options, including a 100X, oil-immersion objective, a moveable 1.25 abbe N.A. condenser iris diaphragm, and a mechanical stage. The mechanical stage is a terrific feature thats hard to wean from once youve tried it; it allows the user to move the slide using two knobs, one that moves the slides horizontal position, and another that adjusts its vertical position on the stage. No more fingerprinted slides or "oops, where did it go?", just because you moved the slide by hand in the wrong direction, or with more force than you intended. Both models include a dust cover, a charger and basic instructions. Model AP1510WL also includes immersion oil and a blue disc filter. We think youll be very happy with either of these excellent student microscopes. Both of the microscopes below now feature LED illumination, which replaced the 20W tungsten bulb models we had previously. We do offer replacement bulbs for the older models and the LED models if needed. - Jess
