Finally set up my personal lab :3
Started with my own cheek cells. Swabbed, heat set and stained using methylene blue chloride:
Excuse the black box lol I gotta set up the scope camera to get better shots.
About a month ago I visited the beach with my friend, we discovered Velella washed up all over the beach! I pockited some and let them dry in my lab. (don’t worry, they were already dead when I obtained them).
I then proceeded to rehydrate them, wet set them to a slide and dyed them with various stains.
Here is a piece of Velella stained with methylene blue chloride. These pictures do no justice on how beautiful they look under the microscope!
And finally janus green stain:
I can’t wait to make more slides. I have about 10 stains and I made my own microtome. Next time I’ll set up the camera scope and take some better photos instead of using my cellphone lol
