Following two articles on microscopes published in January, this month’s update in the ‘Good to Know’ section is focused on preparing microscope slides.
Now that you know microscopes basics, it’s time to learn how to prepare microscope slides. Of course you can always just buy prepared microscope slides, but as a microscope owner you should know the theory and be able to put it into practice.

You will also learn why and when sample staining is required and will find some practical advice on staining.
If you are still not sure that you can do it on your own, read this short step-by-step guide that will give you all needed practical information on preparing microscope slides. This guide is easy to understand and easy to follow, so don’t be afraid! You will be amazed by all the wondrous things that you can find around your own home to use for microscopic observations!
