Slide Storage and Containers

I use these 4 humidity chambers (made from petri dishes and some clay) to keep my favorite wet mounts alive. With regular rehydration, slides can be kept wet and alive for around a month or more.

Below are containers I use to keep samples of sediments, algae, etc… The larger, plastic container is one of many that I use for short-term sample containing; I typically use them to hold samples for placement on the slide. Afterward, the remaining contents are dumped back in their environement.
