Every human being possesses 5 to 7 liters of blood which
constantly circulates in the body. When circulating, it transports
nutrients and heat to wherever needed. The blood also has many
other functions, for example, it is responsible for the closure of
wounds and it is capable of eliminating various pathogens. But
blood itself may be a carrier of pathogens (hepatitis viruses and
HIV), even if people appear to be healthy. Any direct contact with
the blood of another person must therefore be avoided by all means.
For this reason, animal blood or a permanent slide may also be used
in the following experiments.
- Experiment is part of a complete solution set with a total of 50 experiments for all microscopy applications
- With student worksheet, appropriate for all class levels
- With detailed instructor information, incl. sample microscopy image
- Optimized for tight schedules, i.e. minimum preparation time required
- Microscopy solution set specifically designed to include all required accessories
- Content available with matching multimedia files
- Blood appears to be a homogenous red fluid. Try to make single
solid components visible!
