Embryology

Leitz Laborlux 11 microscope & first light viewing Gallus embryo slide (Gallus embryo 12-18 hour E primitive streak)

I have obtained a second hand Leitz Laborlux 11 microscope to use for outreach – the Zeiss IM microscope is just too big to lug around!

Pictures below – comes with a very nice molded box to carry it arround.

First light images from a Gallus embryo slide (Gallus embryo 12-18 hour E primitive streak) using x10 and x40 objectives and Bresser MikrOkular camera.

Gallus gallus: The Chicken embryo is a staple educational tool in developmental biology.Their availability and similarities with mammalian embryo, help shape our present understanding of embryology.
