Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plenty of Organisms These had plenty of organisms for 30 students working in pairs to look at. I got the most organisms on the slide when I used the eye dropper right next to the food source. We looked at the paramecium the first day, amoeba the second, and Euglena the following Monday. I still had organisms two weeks after I received them, but they had become contaminated with other protists. I didn't have slides with wells, so I had students "build a house" for the protists: 1. Place two drops of spring water 1 cm apart on the slide. 2. Place a coverslip on each drop leaving a 3-4 mm gap. Place a drop of the protists in the middle. Place a coverslip on top. This process left the protists plenty of room to move around so they didn't get squished in place. It did mean that students could hit the top coverslip with the microscope lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very useful package indeed. For protists, nothing beats this package. The Amoeba, however, was quite tricky to find. After a few days, they were no longer visible, but the Paramecia and Euglena were still having a swimming party!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product Our high school biology class had a good lab experience with Carolina Biological's Live Basic Protozoa Set. The samples gave the high schoolers a good experience making live slides for the first time. The majority of the samples arrived alive and provided students with a quality learning experience. Good product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect My students love the Live Protist Lab every year. This set fills the bill. Always speedy delivery and concise instructions for keeping the specimens alive. What else can I say? Great value and huge payoff when you see and hear the kids amazement at seeing live microscopic organisms.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Always exciting for students to watch live cells My students love viewing these protozoa. I joke with them that it was the first video game, trying to keep a paramecium within the field of view! My only criticism is that the past couple times I have bought this set we have found it very difficult to find any living amoebas. The euglenas and parameciums are bountiful and active, though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best labs in biology the whole year! Students love seeing these little critters wiggle around under the microscopes. It is one of the best labs of the year!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great protozoans I've ordered these for three years in a row and if the organisms do not arrive alive, they will send you new organisms. They've worked with me several times to make sure they show up just when we need them. Shipping folks are very knowledgeable. That said, there are some things buyers need to understand about live protozoans - First, they are fast moving if you don't use any product that slows their movement... this means students/teachers do have to chase the around a well slide. Second, they are not stained... this is fine when dealing with euglena which are green and the paramecia which are a brownish color, but the ameoba are clear. You can still see them, but you have to look closely. They come with a key which is cool too when teaching dichotomous keys.
