Product Details

Study an array of single-celled organisms called bacteria in these microscope slide sets. Explore bacteria’s complex relationships with the world—from helpful processing to harmful destruction—in diverse environments like soil, foods, the ocean and the human body. Each slide set includes a full-color brochure with corresponding pictures.


Bacteria Slide Set (Large) includes 50 microscope slides:

Mycobacterium tuberculosis, smear from positive sputum stained after Ziehl-Neelsen

Rod-shaped bacteria, non-spore-forming, gram-negative:
Acetobacter aceti, manufacture of vinegar, smear
