So just day before yesterday I received my new Foldscope kit! 😀 and I couldn’t wait to make a bunch of posts. This was my first observation with my new Foldscope. It’s the permanent slide that came with the kit
I collected a Riccia sample from IIT Bombay during the workshop and it had tons of ciliates. I tried experimenting with the light module. Used it without a diffuser, with the diffuser from the kit and then finally used scotch tape as a diffuser. Scotch tape gave the best results. I’m going to try flower petals next time.
Here’s a vorticella I captured just now, cant wait to share more ciliates!
fun fact: Voritcella was one of my first obervations with the old foldscope as well 😀
