Bi1 Foldscope- Camila B

These are pictures of a water sample from Baxter pond obtained at 4 PM on 4/17/2019. I obtained the sampe by taking a sample of water from the pond, then placing it on a Foldscope slide. The pictures show Amoeba swimming around. I wonder what specific species this organism is and how they are swimming….

Uni-cellular Amoeba Lost in Water from Pasadena, CA.

This is a video through a foldscope of a pond sample that was scooped from the top of the Turtle Pond at Caltech on April 10th, 2019 at 6:20 PM PST. The magnification of this video is 140x, and there is a tiny amoeba (domain Eukarya) swimming around the air bubble on the left side…

Leaf cells

Cells of leaf from tree overlooking Throop pond Sample obtained at around 4:30 PM today Sample obtained by filling a cup with water from the pond (there were leaves on the surface of the water) Domain: Eukarya (known b/c the sample is literally a leaf)#caltechbi1

Microscopic Matter in Pond Water

https://videopress.com/v/52Mtw9df The video shows what appears to be pollen and other microscopic entities in pond water. The sample was obtained at about 6:20 PM on 4/10/19 from the top tier of Turtle Pond at Caltech, Pasadena, CA. The magnification is 140x, which means that the pollen is on the order of about 10 microns. #caltechbi

Water from the Caltech Turtle Pond 04/10/2019

0:17 - 0:21 is the notable part where we see motion of some microorganism. It darts in from the top right-hand side and exits back through the middle of the top of the frame. This is a sample of water from the Caltech Turtle Pond gathered on 04/10/2019 at roughly 6:00 pm. The water was...

Foldscope microscopy of pond water from Pasadena, CA

Searching for organisms in sample of pond water with algae and other particulates. The sample was obtained at 4:00 pm on April 10th, 2019 at the Turtle Pond at the California Institute of Technology using a cup. The magnification of the foldscope is 140x. Although I did not find any organisms in my sample, a…

A picture of the sample taken during Bi1 recitation

The picture shows a large body - probably a rock, surrounded by some moving organisms. The sample was provided during recitation, the TA said it is from the Turtle pond. The original picture makes the organism in the center to have the size of about 0.5cm x 0.2 cm. The foldscope magnification is 140x, so...

Baxter Pond Organism

This video is a video of a small organism swimming in a sample taken from Caltech’s baxter pond. The time was about 8:00pm and the sample was taken with a cup (from Ta). The water was transferred to a slide using a disposable pipette and observed through a foldscope lens on an iphone X camera….

Bi1 Pollen Sample

This is a picture of a pollen sample from one of the olive trees on the olive walk near the South Houses on Caltech’s campus. The sample was taken 4/17/19 and it was taken by crumbling an olive tree flower onto a foldscope slide. This is the pollen from an olive tree which is an…

Algae and Worms Observed from Foldscope

The image pictured was obtained through a phone camera snapshot of a sample viewed through a foldscope. The sample was prepared from water taken from the Caltech turtle pond on 4/10/19. In the bottom right-hand corner of the sample, what appears to be algae or some similar green-tinted organism. This organism was no longer moving…

Water from Caltech Turtle Pond

Video of a sample of water with microorganisms from the Caltech turtle pond. The sample was provided to us by the TAs who obtained it from the turtle pond, most likely the day of our recitation 4/10. In order to better determine the characteristics of the moving microorganism that was observed, greater magnification and higher…

Pink flower petal at 140x

This photo shows the cells and veins in a flower petal collected from Caltech campus on 4/10/15 at 6 pm . The sample was removed from a living flower and then pressed between 2 clear stickers until the petal itself turned translucent (approximately 5 minutes). We can see the pink pigment in some of the…

Turtle Pond

Video of wormlike microorganism taken at 7:51 PM on 4/10/19. Sample was taken from the turtle pond at 6:20 PM earlier that day in a vial. The domain of the organism is eukaryote, because the organism in the video is most likely a nematode, due to the wormlike shape. #caltechbi1

Turtle Pond Examination

This video was taken at 7:44 P.M. on 4/10/2019 and depicts a magnified video of a Turtle Pond Sample collected at 6:20 P.M on that same day. This particular droplet of the sample was pipetted from a plastic vial containing the Turtle Pond water.A few questions come to mind when considering the above picture. What...

Algae

A video of algae. Obtained 4/11/2019 at 8:00 pm PST. Sample obtained from Caltech’s turtle ponds. Hmmmm. This organism is part of the Eukarya domain. This is because this is clearly a plant, which are members of Eukarya. #caltechbi1

Pond Water Organism

A video of a pond water sample with an organism moving between plant bits. Because of the movement I expect it to be of Eukaryota.What does it eat? We could take wider view and attempt to track it throughout its behavior. How does it propel itself? For this we would need greater magnification. I expect…

Detecting Hepatitis B virus associated cellular changes in needle aspirate samples of HBV linked Hepatocellular carcinoma patients of different stages

Hematoxylin and Eosin stained sections from Fine Needle Aspirates (FNAC) samples of HCC patients The photomicrgraphs taken with foldscope demonstrates higher stages of HCC patients . Figure a represents cancer cells in FNAC samples of a HCC stages patients which shows cellular clusters of small cells along with widened trabecular, multilayered cells and disorganized architecture....

Foldscope Instructions-School children & staff

Inculcating a sense of inquisitiveness in school children who visited our labs in SKUAST-K from far flung areas, so they get attracted to Science. We love teaching young fertile minds. Thanks to #IndoUSDBTproject
