Inside of an Indian Red Chilli. These fibres along with the seeds contain most of the intense heat one that makes it taste spicy. The outer layer is just a covering and does not too spicy by themselves without the inside fibres and seeds. These fibres when magnified under a foldscope look like the ones…
This is how a petal of Ixora flower. The flower looks red but when seen in a foldscope each of the many petal look more like orange and brown.
These pictures show how the red fibres at the upper end of a ginger look like when seen under a foldscope. Some people refer to the red part as the stem. These pictures show how the structure of a ginger peel is when seen under a foldscope.
In most fruits, as they grow, cuticle is released only at the early stage and later it stops releasing cuticle material. Often the cuticle layer is strained, many a times reversibly, during the development of a fruit. However it’s different when it comes to an apple.Throughout fruit development, cuticle material is deposited as the area…
Different areas of a banana peel as seen under a foldscope. It belongs to the AAB genome category. The outermost layer is shown in this picture.
Yeast is a living organism. It can be used to make bread and alcoholic drinks such as beer and wine. Different species of yeast may cause infections such as thrush. Yeast consists of single cells. They are smaller than animal and plant cells, but slightly larger than bacteria.
Dicot stems have their vascular bundles in a ring arrangement. Monocot stems have most of their vascular bundles near the outside edge of the stem. … Monocot roots, interestingly, have their vascular bundles arranged in a ring. Dicot roots have their xylem in the center of the root and phloem outside the xylem.
This is what a spider web looks like in a foldscope. Here both the sticky part where the insects are captured and the dry part where the spider crawls can be seen. All comments and suggestions are welcomed.
Observing The Fruiting Structure Of Acervulus disease causing fungus on chilli. It was a great experience to see the spores so clearly.
Observing Moss Leaf Under Foldscope.
Dandruff was Observed under Foldscope. Dandruff is a fungus. It was a great experience.
Dandruff can have several causes, including dry skin, seborrhoeic dermatitis, not cleaning/scrubbing often enough, shampooing too often, scalp psoriasis, eczema, sensitivity to hair care products, or a yeast-like fungus. Dry skin is the most common cause of flaking dandruff.
Mosses are bryophytes, primitive plants believed to be among the first to develop the ability to live on land. Mosses have no vascular tubes to transfer water or nutrients, and no true stems or roots. Environmental water sources and absorption limit their size. The University of Massachusetts estimates there are 14,500 moss species growing in…
Cheek cells are eukaryotic cells (cells that contain a nucleus and other organelles within enclosed in a membrane) that are easily shed from the mouth lining. It is therefore easy to obtain them for observation.
As in all plant cells, the cell of an onion peel consists of a cell wall, cell membrane, cytoplasm and nucleus.
It was a great experience watching slide of epidemic cells and stomatas with the help of a foldscope . Foldscope works really well as a portable microscope and it also does not require any adjustment. According to me Foldscope is a great device.
Foldscope Training Session Held At KV Khanapara for the students of class IX.
Mosquito Wing Observed Under Foldscope.

Viewing of Pollen Grains Of Hibiscus under Foldscope.
This is the picture of stomata present in the epidermis on the leaf peel of Betel Leaf .Stomata can be very clearly seen through the foldscope .Stomata are tiny pores between the guard cell which help in transpiration and gaseous exchange.
