Microscopy mounting media II

Today I found a brilliantly written, hugely informative, and well-illustrated guide to Safe Microscope Techniques for Amateurs, written by Walter Dioni. It is a series of four articles, originally published in Micscape, the magazine of the Microscopy UK organisation.

"Safe Microscope Techniques for Amateurs" discusses liquid media, solid media, mixed media and glycerin jellies. All techniques are explained clearly and several suggestions for equipment or readily available appropriate subsitutes are given. In summary, the series is an excellent introduction to microscope mounting techniques and gives some very useful tips for making good microscope mounts.
