3%, aqueous, quieting/slowing solution
Non-toxic methyl cellulose (3.0%) solution for slowing the movements of protozoa. The high viscosity of a drop of this solution added to a wet-mount preparation will slow (or cease) movement while students make careful observations. An indispensable aid to microscopy. Both package sizes in dropper bottles.
