What are your students interested in?
High school, college, and graduate-level students get a lot from a kit of 50 human histology prepared microscope slides.
Under the compound microscope, students get a clear look at cells in blood or bone marrow, or tonsil tissue.
A kit of 50 prepared microscope slides from the 5 kingdoms is great for high school biology class and includes samples of animal tissue, plant, fungi, protists, and monera samples. Each microscope slide in this set is either placed in a cross-section, longitudinal section, or whole mount.
If you prefer a smaller slide set, they're available for home users, with sets of 5 including:

On the quality of your prepared slides
Every prepared slide is assembled by a human expert meticulously going through each step of slide preparation to ensure every sample is perfect.
Every dry mount slide, with samples of pollen, hair, feathers, or plant materials is prepared with a coverslip to keep the specimen in place and to help protect the objective lens of the microscope.
Every wet mount slide is prepared using established best practices. A drop of water suspends the specimen between the slide and coverslip. The sample is placed on the slide, then water. The cover slip goes over the edge of the sample and is carefully lowered into place. Using this method, air bubbles are removed from the microscope slide entirely. You'll find this type of mount with liquid-bound organisms such as paramecium or bodily fluids.
Every smear slide sample is made by carefully smearing a thin layer of the specimen across a slide and then applying a cover slip. It is then allowed to air dry before applying a stain.
Prepared slides that last a long, long time
Used and stored in slide storage boxes properly, these prepared slides will last 5+ years with regular use.
Whether it's a plant stem or a piece of an insect or some other organism, when learners look down the eyepiece or capture their first image under the magnification of their digital microscope, they're peering into a whole new world.
Every prepared microscope slide takes them to a new place and shows them something they've never seen. Something to get them excited about science and the world around them.
They can learn about slide prep and staining later. Today, just show them something cool.
