Category Description for Microslide Viewer & Slide Sets:
The Microslide Viewer is an alternative to a microscope. It looks a lot like a microscope, but instead of viewing your own slides or prepared slides, it uses low-power magnification to allow you to view Microslides. A Microslide consists of eight 35mm images photographed from a microscope. Because they are actual photographs, they are much clearer than a normal slide's image. The microslides are stored in clear plastic holders for protection, and arrows call attention to the important features of the image. The strip fits right in the viewer so that you can pull it through to view all eight pictures. As you can see from the list below, plenty of Microslides are available. You can use it inside or outside, as it doesn't require batteries or electricity. Normal classroom light reflects off the white reflector to enable you to see the images clearly. This is a much cheaper alternative to a microscope and slides, without sacrificing image quality.

Microslides come in a folder-like card which features information about each slide and includes a holder for the slide itself. A helpful amount of information is normally included for each slide image, including the name of the image, the magnification of the image, background information and points of interest. It's especially helpful when points of interest are labeled with letters, which are repeated on the slide, to make it easy to locate them. It's like getting a guided tour! Although designed for the Microslide viewer, these slides can also be viewed on a standard microscope, with some adjustment. ~ Stephanie
