AmScope PS25 Prepared Microscope Slide Set for Basic Biological Science Education, 25 Slides, Includes Fitted Wooden Case

The AmScope PS25 microscope slide set includes 25 prepared slides of a variety of specimens including plants, insects, and animal tissues used in basic biology education. The samples are preserved in cedar wood oil and sealed with a coverslip to preserve specimens and prevent contamination. Labeling on each slide identifies specimens. Slides are composed of optical glass for clear viewing and are 3 x 1 x 0.4 inches/75 x 25 x 1mm (H x W x D, where H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.) The set comes in a fitted wooden case to prevent breakage and ease handling.

Slide specimens include coprimus mushroom (cross section), dense connective tissue (section), dog cardiac muscle (longitudinal section), dog esophagus (cross section), dog skeletal muscle (longitudinal section and cross section), dog stomach (section), honeybee worker leg-composite (whole mount), house bee mouth parts (whole mount), human blood (smear), hydra (longitudinal section), Hydrilla verticillata leaf (whole mount), Lilium anther (cross section), Lilium ovary (cross section), nymphaea of apustio stem (cross section), onion epidermis (whole mount), pig motor nerve (section mount), pine leaf (cross section), pine stem (cross section), pumpkin stem (cross section), rabbit spinal cord (cross section), rabbit testis (section), sunflower stem (cross section), Tilia stem (cross section), young root of broad bean (cross section), Zea stem (cross section).

Microscopes are instruments used to enhance the resolution of an object or image. Types include compound, stereo, or digital. Compound microscopes use a compound optical system with an objective lens and an eyepiece. Stereo microscopes show object depth in a three-dimensional image. Digital microscopes are used to display an image on a monitor, rather than looking through a lens. Microscopes can have monocular (one), binocular (two), or trinocular (three) eyepieces, with varying magnification abilities. Magnification ability refers to the size of an image. Resolution, also known as resolvant power, refers to the clarity of the image. The interaction between field of view (FOV), numerical aperture (NA), and working distance (WD) determines resolution. Microscopes can control magnification through a fixed focus, or through a range of adjustments. They can also utilize LED, fluorescent, and mirror light sources to help control viewing capabilities. Microscopes are widely used in education, lab research, biology, metallurgy, engineering, chemistry, manufacturing, and in the medical, forensic science, and veterinary industries.

United Scope manufactures microscopy equipment and accessories under the brand name AmScope. The company, founded in 1996, is headquartered in Irvine, CA.

Obama’s Greatest Legacy: The Coming End of Biological Aging and Disease (includes information on how to access clinical trials for Regenerative Medicine)

Dedication to President Barack Obama After the defunding of stem cell research by President Bush in 2001 due to the use of human embryonic stem cells (hESCs), the science of regenerative medicine became stagnant and many scientists left the country to set-up labs abroad. It had been anticipated that this emerging science could affect cures for diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, Parkinson’s, blindness, cancer – just to name a few. Prior to his death in 2004, Christopher Reeves, the actor famous for his role as Superman, was hopeful for a cure for his spinal injuries but was often frustrated by the limits placed on stem cell research in the United States. However, the controversy over embryonic cells subsided when, according to the Embryo Project, Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSCs) became “derived from non-pluripotent cells, such as adult somatic cells, that are genetically manipulated so as to return to an undifferentiated, pluripotent state. Research on iPSCs, initiated by Shinya Yamanaka in 2006 (in Japan) and extended by James Thompson (University of Wisconsin) in 2007, has so far revealed the same properties as embryonic stem cells (hESCs), making their discovery potentially very beneficial for scientists and ethicists alike.” No human eggs are required for these cells. As declared by the NIH (National Institute of Health) “On March 9, 2009, President Barack H. Obama issued Executive Order 13505: Removing Barriers to Responsible Scientific Research Involving Human Stem Cells. The Executive Order states that the Secretary of Health and Human Services, through the Director of NIH, may support and conduct responsible, scientifically worthy human stem cell research, including human embryonic stem cell (hESC) research, to the extent permitted by law.” This executive order allows federally funded researchers to experiment on hundreds of ES (Embryonic Stem) cell lines that were restricted by President Bush. Because of President Obama, this new genesis of medicine has the ability to transform the accompanying health and longevity of humankind beyond anything we can currently imagine. As the science of regenerative medicine evolves, cures of heretofore “incurable” diseases will begin to appear. It is even predicted that in the next quarter century we will be able to eliminate biological aging and remain looking young for an indefinite period of time. In my opinion, regenerative medicine will be Obama’s greatest legacy.
