AP-1 Lab 01 – Lab Report Name: Section: Bio 201 Laboratory Report: Exercise 1: Using the Microscope Purpose: What is the purpose of this exercise? Are there any safety concerns associated with this exercise? If so, list what they are and what precautions should be taken. The purpose of this exercise is to be familiar with knowing how to operate, maintain, clean, and transport the microscope carefully. There are many associated safety concerns to adhere to while using the microscope. Here’s a list of safety concerns to follow: 1) Transport or carry the microscope with two hands, one at the base and the other holding the arm. 2) Put the scope down gently as to prevent making damages to the eyepieces, lenses, etc. When putting it away, it’s best to store the scope away on a stable desk and leveled surface or else store it in a fitted foam case it comes in. 3) Operate the scope with clean hands. 4) The lens should not be clean with any tissue paper or other cloth due to possible minerals/lints/deposits on it besides for microfiber cloth, high quality lens paper, or cotton swab. When disassembling the lens for cleaning, it’s important to remember their face positions (convex surface up or down) to avoid confusion and improperly restoring them in the wrong way. 5) Use the stop set screw to prevent the objective lens from touching the slide or specimen while adjusting the coarse knob. 6) When operating the scope, be sure to start the objective lens from the lowest position, close to the slide, then only use the coarse knob to bring it higher up.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
