I am a non-bio student working on an academic paper recently and would like to have some sample preparation for phase contrast microscope.
For it to work, I imagine the sample to be:
Easy to obtain from daily stuffs;
Easy to slice and prepare (i.e. approachable to people untrained in bio).
Best dimension around 10 micros, and is well seen under x100.
Preferable to be seen dynamics at room temperature.
My current thoughts are:
Human: oral cheek cells, red blood smear, sperm.
Plants: onion surface cells.
Others: yeast, pond water.
Any further suggestions (especially dynamic ones)? Thanks!
