They liked the pocket ultra-affordable paper microscope- The Foldscope.
sample 3 staphylococcus
Sample 15- Cladosporium was found in Drinking water and observed under Foldscope.
Sample 12 – Cladosporium sp
sample 3- Cladosporium was found in a drinking water sample. the hyphae and spores are separated.
sample – 3 Aspergillus
sample 2 Cladosporium found in the drinking water seen under foldscope.
Sample-2. Cladosporium was found in a drinking water sample.
Sample 1o Bacillus sp Staphylococcus sp Two different colonies were isolated in which 1. mucoid- Bacillus sp, 2. Dried colony- Staphylococcus sp. are seen through foldscope after gram staining the colonies.
sample-5 Gram-positive organism Staphylococcus sp was present in drinking water identified by foldscope.
sample 4 – Gram-negative organism Pseudomonas was present in the drinking water sample that was observed through foldscope
SAMPLE 3- Staphylococcus organism was present in the drinking water.
Aspergillus was identified through foldscope. Under Lactophenol cotton blue stain a single Aspergillus was seen.
tiny cells inside the leaf were observed.
A flower petal was taken and observed through foldscope. Tiny pink-colour structures were observed.
A drop of pond water was taken and a small drop of safranin stain was added to it. The sample was covered with a coverslip and the sides were sealed with cellotape. A red colour and as well as black dots were observed and a different structure which was coloured by stain was also observed through foldscope.
Sample 7 Shillong drinking water sample. The thread-like and some transparent structures were observed through Foldscope
Sample 3 Shillong water sample threadlike and other small tiny structures were observed through foldscope. S
Sample 21 folded thread like structure observed through foldscope.
Sample 20. irregular structures were observed
Sample 18- different thread like structure and black dots were observed through foldscope.
sample- 16 numerous black dots observed under foldscope in the drinking water sample.
Examination of fungi Caldosporium in drinking water under LCB stain
The drinking water samples was Gram stained and observed through Foldscope. The pink colour Gram negative rods was observed through Foldscope.
In drinking water sample these fungi the internal structures after growth on the media was observed through Foldscope. This is Aspergillus sp.
