Introduce cell culture techniques into your biotech lab
- Students prepare and stain slides
- Time required: ~45 minutes
Differences between various mammalian cell types and how these cells function are revealed in detailed magnification with this activity. Cells are fixed on microscope slides, after which students stain the cells on the slide to view morphological characteristics of diverse cell types. Includes materials for six student groups, instructions, multispot slides, eosin and methylene blue stain, mounting media, cover slips, transfer pipets, and immersion troughs. A microscope with 400X magnification is required, but not included..
