Supplies for your compound microscope
You use your compound microscope to study bacteria or cell culture or some other type of biological sample.
You watch your students use them in the science lab to look at amoeba in a sample of water in a petri dish, or a tissue sample from a frog's tongue.
But do to those things, you need supplies like:
The microscope slide with the sample (maybe it's a prepared slide from one of the sets you can find here)
Stains for whatever sample you put on the slide, and the coverslip.
You need the petri dish.
You also need storage for your slides when they aren't in use - slide storage cabinets or slide boxes with draining trays.
