Technique Video: Permanent Slide Preparation
What is the best way to make a permanent prep? Watch this video from Hooke College of Applied Sciences and find out.
Permanent preparations of particles on microscope slides can be made in any number of ways. Advantages to using this method include fewer trapped air bubbles, less chance of sample loss, less chance of contaminating the mounting medium and less waste of mounting medium.
