If you aren't careful, you'll get airborne fungus / mold in your plates or slants. All of the unused slants I made are free from contamination. But one of the plates I made contracted a disease.

This plate had some odd craters in it, I guess from a bubble that was in there. I opened it up and looked at the craters under my inspection scope when it was a day old; I only looked at it for about 20 seconds. In that time, I guess something dropped out of the air. Here the plate is, about 10 days old.

I got a new toy for taking pictures in my scope, so I intend on adding more content here soon. I've made a bunch of plates, but I didn't need to make slants since I have a bunch of them that look perfect. Except one. The lid wasn't tight.

Anyone want to try to pick out the one that dried up For those familiar with marine fauna, dried agar agar media looks just like a nudibranch.

I picked up a cheap AmScope M152A and the 40x objective hits the hemocytometer when it focuses. This isn't normal, right? Anyone else have this issue?

I do not have that issue, although it gets very close. The cover slip over the hemcytometer should be very thin.
