LiveSlide® Living Slides

These innovative, optically clear microscope slides have proven to unmask rarely seen features of microorganisms.

A shallow reservoir confines them to a liquid depth not much larger than the depth of field of the microscope, yet deep enough to allow the microscopic animals to move about freely.
