    What a wonderful post. Absolutely love your creativity of heading to the fish market for some fresh fish blood!! Love it.

    I wonder how the fisherman would react to seeing fish blood in real time. It would be wonderful if you went back and actually recorded the reaction; I would love to see how that conversation would go. They know so much about the life of fish they catch – so this would be a wonderful part of experience they would have!!

    Fantastic images. Could you please share your staining protocol!

      Thank you Sir for your motivating words

      Leishman’s Stain was used for staining. After preparing the smear, slide was kept for air drying and stained for 3 mins. Excess stain was drained out and left for complete air dry. Then, cello tape was put on the stained area and observed under Foldscope.
