Re: I was looking to get more out my microscope.

Side note:

I am interested in rotifers and was wondering if I can culture some and separate them into a small petri dish to research any information that I can observe, like eating habits ect…

I work Mon-Fri so the only free day I get is Saturday and on Sundays I do other stuff.

I was looking to get more out my microscope.

I bought a brand new microscope early this year and I’ve already looked at quite a few household objects and some pond life. I was hoping there is more to owning a microscope rather than just looking at random cells. Can anyone recommend experiments I can conduct at home? Something that is relativel...

I’m a amateur and trying to look for food poisoning germs.

Hello.

I am an amateur microscopist and was wondering where do I go about finding and seeing food poisoning bacteria under the microscope like salmonella or E.coli?

I already have a microscope that can see up to 400x magnification and a methylene blue staining solution.

Can anyone please help?

This cotton stem was taken from a prepared slide.

Looks very nice though. :mrgreen:

Re: I’m struggling to have a closer look at Rotifers.

photomicro gave a nice idea about using wallpaper paste. Will that stuff wash off the slides?

Re: IPHONE SCREEN - 100X

Just a note for everyone discussing what magnification it was taken at.

I just checked and realised my eye piece says "10xWF". So it's a 10x Wide Field (18mm) eye piece. :roll:

Is my total magnification still 100x?

The problem is that if they are dead, you can't see them opening their mouth when they feed.

Re: IPHONE SCREEN - 100X

I used the 10x objective and a 10x eye piece, so I calculated 100x total magnification.

I think it might be different sizes depending on electronics for example television, tablet or smartphones.

This was a iPhone 5s for your reference.

Re: FORUM RECENT POST ISSUES

The admin should create "POST CREATION DATE" on the filter. Otherwise a topic which was created in 1969 could still be at the top of a list just because somebody made a comment on a old topic. :evil: This is a very nice forum for microscopists but the functionally is letting this forum down. :cry:
