Provide students broad examples of what can be understood from light microscopy of cells. Micrographs were all taken at 400X magnification, and each image demonstrates different cells and cell components. Set is an excellent complement to the Dynamic Cell Models (Z50569M, Z50571M) for classrooms short on microscopes. Each 16 in. x 20 in. poster comes in a sturdy frame with a grommet for hanging. A dry-erase marker may be used and erased on the frames. Set of five posters include:

Elodea canadensis: These plant cells can be used to see cell walls, cell membranes, chloroplasts, and cytosol. Some nuclei are also visible. The central vacuole is apparent when viewing live cells as the area avoided during cytoplasmic streaming. These cells are unstained.

Cheek (with bacteria): These human (animal) cells can be used to view cytoplasm, nuclei, and cell membranes (only as the edge of the cytoplasm). These can also be used to show that animal cells lack cell walls. The methylene blue stain used on these cells also reveals bacillus and coccus bacteria stuck to the cheek cells and slide.

Red pepper: These plant cells are from the peel of a red pepper, which is a very tough portion of the fruit. Therefore, these cells demonstrate a particularly thick cell wall. Also visible are the red chromoplasts and plasmodesmata running through the thick cell walls. Some nuclei are also detectable, although these cells were not stained.

Banana cells: These plant cells were taken from the fruit of the banana. The cells were stained with iodine to reveal the starch contained within their amyloplasts. The cell walls (very thin), cell membrane and cytoplasm, and amyloplasts are visible.

Red onion: These plant cells were taken from the thin purple layer of a red onion. They were coverslipped in iodine to add some contrast to their nuclei, but no starch is present. The cell walls, cytoplasm, and nuclei are visible.
