Observing different stages of Mitosis using foldscope

In the workshop I learnt to assemble and use foldscope for exploring nature. Firstly we all tried observing using permanent slides and then we collected random samples to observe using foldscope.

I tried my hands on onion root tip slide. In theory I had studied different stages of Mitosis in dividing cells – Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase and Telophase. I was able to see the different stages but these were a little blurry. Slight increase in lens magnification can help its use in cytological observations.
