This includes preparing and staining a slide, to using a microscope to observe at 1000x magnification using the proper techniques. The second major part of the lab was to collect information on identifying an unknown organism. The results as can be seen in the three pictures given, are that the stains were successful and the shapes and distinctions in the microorganism are able to be sen. The two different organism that were stained are E.Coli and S. Aureus. The stain resulted in E.coli being many rod shaped bacteria that are visible and the S.
