Product Description
It is easy to prepare slides of bacteria from yogurt and students will be interested in the microscopic view! There are actually three procedures described in this packet. Two of the procedures are very simple and produce wet mounts (one without a stain, one using methylene blue). The third procedure is a full microbiological staining procedure that produces a dry slide. All slides can be viewed with a typical 3-lens microscope (4x,10x,40x). Yes, bacteria are very small but their cells can be seen at 400x. Oil immersion microscopes (1000x) are a bonus.

There are two sets of graphic notes provided to help build student understanding on this topic. There are also images of example yogurt slides included so that students will have an idea of what to look for with their own slides. A blank template for students to draw their microscopic diagrams is included.
