Product description

Colour Name:Brown

The AmScope PS25 microscope slide set includes 25 prepared slides of a variety of specimens including plants, insects, and animal tissues used in basic biology education. The samples are preserved in cedar wood oil and sealed with a coverslip to preserve specimens and prevent contamination. Labeling on each slide identifies specimens. Slides are composed of optical glass for clear viewing and are 3 x 1 x 0.4 inches/75 x 25 x 1mm (H x W x D, where H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.) The set comes in a fitted wooden case to prevent breakage and ease handling.

Slide specimens include coprimus mushroom (cross section), dense connective tissue (section), dog cardiac muscle (longitudinal section), dog esophagus (cross section), dog skeletal muscle (longitudinal section and cross section), dog stomach (section), honeybee worker leg-composite (whole mount), house bee mouth parts (whole mount), human blood (smear), hydra (longitudinal section), Hydrilla verticillata leaf (whole mount), Lilium anther (cross section), Lilium ovary (cross section), nymphaea of apustio stem (cross section), onion epidermis (whole mount), pig motor nerve (section mount), pine leaf (cross section), pine stem (cross section), pumpkin stem (cross section), rabbit spinal cord (cross section), rabbit testis (section), sunflower stem (cross section), Tilia stem (cross section), young root of broad bean (cross section), Zea stem (cross section).

Microscopes are instruments used to enhance the resolution of an object or image. Types include compound, stereo, or digital. Compound microscopes use a compound optical system with an objective lens and an eyepiece. Stereo microscopes show object depth in a three-dimensional image. Digital microscopes are used to display an image on a monitor, rather than looking through a lens. Microscopes can have monocular (one), binocular (two), or trinocular (three) eyepieces, with varying magnification abilities. Magnification ability refers to the size of an image. Resolution, also known as resolvant power, refers to the clarity of the image. The interaction between field of view (FOV), numerical aperture (NA), and working distance (WD) determines resolution. Microscopes can control magnification through a fixed focus, or through a range of adjustments. They can also utilize LED, fluorescent, and mirror light sources to help control viewing capabilities. Microscopes are widely used in education, lab research, biology, metallurgy, engineering, chemistry, manufacturing, and in the medical, forensic science, and veterinary industries.

United Scope manufactures microscopy equipment and accessories under the brand name AmScope. The company, founded in 1996, is headquartered in Irvine, CA.

4.0 out of 5 stars Scientist in the making!
Reviewed in the United States on 24 January 2018
Bought this set to go along with a PBOX Microscope [[ASIN:B01HPNIBQ4 Science kits for kids microscope Beginner Microscope Kit LED 100X, 400x, and 1200x Magnification kids science toys,red]] as a Christmas present for my almost 8 year old niece because she had decided this year that she was much too old for "toys" and had graduated to wanting more "big girl" gifts! She took a few moments when she first unwrapped the gifts, leaving my wife and I a little concerned that we had overreached with her age, but once she wrapped her head around what she was looking at, she was all in!

We had to help with the initial learning curve (for some odd reason, this 7 year old was not completely familiar w/lab equipment), but once you clear that little hurdle, the curiosity takes off! She quickly went from a little kid opening presents to inquisitive scientist, explaining to the entire family each new slide that was currently under observation.

The slides are legitimate glass, have shaved off edges to minimize the opportunity of cutting oneself, and come in a sturdy wood case to protect the slides and help keep them organized.

My main overall knock against the slides is that as great as it is for my niece to experience very unique specimens, they are also unique enough that her excitement becomes a bit muted as many of the specimens are not things she can readily recognize/understand (e.g. aqustio nymphaea). And frankly, even after the adults in the room admittedly looked some of these up and did our best to explain, certain slides were just so far out of the world she could relate to that they became a bit uninteresting. Plus, one of the slides arrived cracked and many of them were smudged coming out of the box, so please be sure to inspect/clean them before letting your kids dive in.

Listing of the slides: Aqustio Nymphaea Stem, Bean Root, Connective Tissue, Coprinus Mushroom, Dog Esophagus, Dog Heart Muscle, Dog Skeletal Muscle, Dog Stomach Muscle, Honeybee Jaw/Mandible, Honeybee Leg, Human Blood, Hydrilla Leaf, Lily Ovary, Lily Anther, Onion Skin, Pig Nerve, Pine Leaf, Pine Stem, Pumpkin Stem, Rabbit Spinal Cord, Rabbit Testicles, Sunflower Stem, Tilia Stem, Zea Stem

Reviewed in the United States on 6 April 2015
LOVE this slide set. Very well put together, my children(3, 5, 7, 9) have had no problems finding the object under a microscope.
The set comes in a very nice wood box, with a label sheet, which you really only need if you want to keep them in that order in the box. Each individual slide is labeled with the object to be observed.

Great price for a starting set. As a homeschooling family, we have used this set quite frequently already.

Reviewed in the United States on 5 February 2017
I read some negative things about the wooden case that houses these slides, but I took the chance and bought this anyway., taking into mind the number of positive reviews. I'm pleased to say I had no problems with it. It's a pretty nice case and holds the slides securely in place. I didn't find any difficulty with opening or closing the case. The set is nice and clean, and offers a good variety of 25 slides...nothing chipped or broken. My slide set arrived in excellent condition and on time. The photo is of the pine leaf slide included in this set using the AmScope 40X-100X dual light glass lens metal-body student microscope for $79.
