LCCC SIM Microscopes 2024

Microscope Slide Sets
LCCC SIM has multiple monocular microscopes and dissecting microscopes that can be used individually by students. A microscope also can be fitted with a USB camera connected to a computer or Chromebook that allows the teacher to project the slide images or save pictures of the slides for future reference. United Scientific Supplies has prepared a basic set of 100 common biological substances and organisms (Item# SLD100N) that would be appropriate for an introductory biology class.

United Scientific Biology Microscope Slides

Advanced classes can study the Ward’s Histology Slide Sets that include samples from various biological systems found in the body of organisms. A partial list of the slides available are listed below:
