Human Anatomy Microscope Slides

The above image is smooth muscle, captured at 400x magnification with the DC5-163 digital microscope. Smooth muscle is a type of non-striated muscle, found within the walls of hollow organs and in areas such as the bladder, uterus, abdominal cavity, GI tract, respiratory tract and iris of the eye.

Human artery, vein and part of a nerve, captured at 400x magnification with the DC5-163 microscope. Arteries are muscular blood vessels that carry blood away from the heart. A vein is a blood vessel that carries blood toward the heart. A nerve is an enclosed, cable-like bundle of axons (the long, slender projection of a neuron).

The Bacteriology Prepared Slide Kit contains different prepared slides relating to bacteria.
