Once slides have been prepared, they can be examined under a microscope.
Record the microscope images using labelled diagrams or produce digital images.
When first examining cells or tissues with low power, draw an image at this stage, even if going on to examine the slide with high power.
A low power diagram is used:
A high power diagram is then produced – a detailed image of a part of the slide. It is usually drawn to show a single cell, eg of a single cheek cell or onion cell.
