Let’s do something easy while I’m doing my Youtube Channel. Ah, I’m going to show you guys my microscope that I’ve bought for 2 years. Why wouldn’t I have a microscope? That’s the basic things you need for a laboratory. So let’s see how it looks like. Also, this is going to be a long post, so sit down and enjoy.
So here’s my microscope. The least zoom is 40x. The max zoom is 400x which means you could see cells with it.
But I have no idea what model it is and what company it’s from. The only thing I have is a foam box which has nothing on it.
And this is the thing that I’m more interested than the microscope:
From AmScope. Maybe that’s where the microscope is from.
Let’s open the case… or… box or whatever you want to call it.
Microscope slides! There’s so many!
According to the list, there are exactly 100 microscope slides in this… I’ll call it a case.
Hope you can read the list and I’m not sure why the paper is torn…
Let’s use some of these with the microscope.
Let’s do the bee leg.
Put it on the microscope.
And turn it on.
But this slide is very dirty, because you can see the tiny dots around it.
Let’s try the mosquito mouth parts.
Again, it is very dirty and dusty, but it looks nice.
Let’s try bone marrow. It looks completely invisible.
Umm, a square? Let’s try zooming 100 times (100x)
There’s nothing on here. Next one!
This is butterfly scales (the pigment you see on butterflywings).
A housefly’s eye. Gross right? But it’s not terrible as you think.
It looks like a net. Let’s zoom in 100x.
It looks like it’s torn.
Looks nice. But boring, next!
This is the Hydrilla Verticillata’s leaf.
Hydrilla (Esthwaite Waterweed, waterthyme or hydrilla) is a genus of aquatic plant, usually treated as containing just one species, Hydrilla verticillata, though some botanists divide it into several species. It is native to the cool and warm waters of the Old World in Asia, Europe, Africa and Australia, with a sparse, scattered distribution; in Europe, it is reported from Ireland, Great Britain, Germany, and the Baltic States, and in Australia from Northern Territory, Queensland, and New South Wales.
The stems grow up to 1–2 m long. The leaves are arranged in whorls of two to eight around the stem, each leaf 5–20 mm long and 0.7–2 mm broad, with serrations or small spines along the leaf margins; the leaf midrib is often reddish when fresh.
My leaf is 5mm long and 3mm wide. Let’s look at it in the microscope.
Pretty. Let’s zoom in.
Wow, that looks nice.
That’s all the time I’ve got for today. Hope you enjoy the post!
