Hello. I am trying to identify E. coli in water after a smear and a simple stain with crystal violet. I am using the 140X magnification lens plus 2X zoom from a mobile device, but the images obtained do not provide a clear visualization of E. coli cells. I attached two images of E. coli…
This little insect is too small to be seen clearly with unaided eyes. It looks black in colour and it randomly bit me, it’s bite is just like a sting of a mosquito. I don’t know what it’s called hence, I name this little insect ‘Insect Scorpion’.

This is my first post and I thought this was really cool so I wanted to post it.
I saw onion cell it was the best I could get and I could do the best capture I can get
My very first sample and observation with the foldscope is this almond seed coat! I routinely soak the almonds every night to have them in the morning. Today morning as I peeled soaked almonds, I was just curious as to how they would appear under the microscope. The seed coat was peeled off, dried and…
I noticed a green layer (presumably algae) growing on the terracotta pots on my terrace. All the pots have greenish growth on them, but they all look very different. One pot had a layer which was considerably thicker, and easy to scrape off. I soaked bits of it in regular tap water and let it…

As a succulent enthusiast, the object I have chosen for scientific curiosity is a succulent called Sedum adolphi ‘firestorm,’ which were taken from my personal collection of succulents. I find it exciting to learn about the utilization organisms to produce or carry out functions related to the biomedical field. Examples are Escherichia coli, Saccharomyces cerevisiae,…
It was a great exprince but how can i get a quality focus?
This is a test post in app. Very cool addition (app) for Foldscoping!
I have observed the outer epidermis of a leaf and the skin of a pea pod under my Foldscope. The samples were taken at different times of the day, and we can see both closed and open stomata, depending on when they were taken. Closed Stomata This is a leaf peel from a rhoeo (Tradescantia…
An onion peel is typically one of the first samples viewed when introduced to school-level microscopy. Here are images of an onion skin under my Foldscope. The cells are seen very distinctly and have a three-dimensional appearance. CookerBird
Springtails from a moss sample! I was looking for tardigrades, I had never found Collembola in moss. Maybe a member of genus Brachystomella? ¡Colémbolos en una muestra de musgo! Estaba buscando tardígrados, es la primera vez que encuentro colémbolos en el musgo. ¿Podría ser del género Brachystomella?

Hi everyone, I’m Manas, a 11th grader from Bangalore, India. I am particularly interested in studying the phenomena of patterning of flower petals using the foldscope. Before analysing petal patterning, I wanted to work on a simple experiment with onion cells to help me understand the workings of a foldscope. I peeled a few samples…
