Sketch the cheek cell at medium and high power. Label the nucleus , cytoplasm , and cell membrane. Draw your cells to scale. Medium Power High Power 3. Why is using methylene blue as a stain necessary? Using the methylene blue stain is necessary in order for us to differentiate between the different parts of the cell. 4. The light microscope used in the lab is not powerful enough to view other organelles in the cheek cell. What parts of the cell were visible?
