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.
I use these tools for sample collection. Included are tweesers, a pipette for water samples, a silicon brush for brushing things away without anything sticking, and some scissors.
Out of the 4 microscopes I own, this Omax M82ES Compound Binocular microscope is the one I use most frequently. Also included in the featured photo is the power cord and 10x eyepiece lenses (the lenses currently used on the microscope are 20x).
I use this humidity chamber (made from a petri dish and some clay) to keep my best wet mounts alive. These are pretty easy to make, but they only house one slide. However, they work very well at keeping your slides alive. The slide in the chamber currently has been alive for over a week.
