All slides, prepared and plain, and specialty chemicals are included in this kit to perform all the microscope activities in the curriculum (Activities: 3,7,15,19,20,22,23,24,26,30, & 33).

A microscope is required and must be purchased separately. Microscopes recommended by Novare: MI-4100LST and MI-4100LXL

Live cultures (Activities 7, 19 & 20) are not included and must be purchased separately: Elodea (Anacharis) LD-ELODEA and Protozoa Mixture LD-PROTOZA. All microscope experiments can be completed with the included slides; however, the live cultures add to the experience. Please note: Live cultures are restricted to shipping in the US48 states.
