Projects in Bold Red are ready to view
Micscape Editor's note: Larry's mentor has sadly passed away so unfortunately this series isn't anticipated to be continued.
Readers may wish to check the Microtechnique Processes section of our site Library where:
Walter Dioni has an extensive series of mounting techniques using materials from around the home.
Yvan Lindekens has a series discussing more advanced techniques including some techniques planned for this series such as wax embedding.
Many of the processes for making permanent slides both basic and advanced are also discussed in the invaluable 'Practical Microscopy' booklets written by the late J. Eric Marson of NBS. The compiled Practical Microscopy booklets are available from Brunel Microscopes for £12 where many of the reagents and equipment can also be bought.
