Our most popular blood slide. This microscope slide shows human blood cells stained with Wright’s stain.
Give your students an up-close look at human blood cells using Carolina’s most popular prepared blood microscope slide. The blood smear is stained with Wright’s stain, allowing students to easily distinguish between red and white blood cells. Erythrocytes (red blood cells) are the plentiful, pink cells in the smear. Leukocytes (white blood cells) are larger cells with a purple nucleus. Based on the shape and size of the nucleus in the white blood cells, students can classify them as neutrophils, eosinophils, basophils, lymphocytes, or monocytes. In addition, students can identify platelets in the smear; these are also pink cells but are much smaller than the numerous red blood cells.
For over 70 years our mission has been to provide educators with top-quality microscope slides for botany, zoology, histology, embryology, parasitology, genetics, and pathology. To fulfill that mission, we depend on our experienced, professional staff's commitment to finding new and innovative ways of meeting your classroom needs at an affordable cost. The result is an extensive collection of prepared slides for educators at all levels of instruction backed by our expert technical support.
We welcome the opportunity to prepare custom slides and sets to your specifications. For more information, please call 800.227.1150 and ask for the Microscope Slides Department.
