DISCUSSION This practical was conducted to implement the study of microscope by observing the prepared slides of bacteria cells, animal cell and plant cell. From the observation of the slides, the differences between bacterial cell and that of the typical animal and plant cells can be determined. Microscopy using high-power objectives allow us to see cells of animals and plants along with its organelles, but this observation might not represent the real image of the specimens. This is because the diffraction of light has put a limitation on the resolution. The important characteristics of a microscope are a good magnification and a good resolution. The stained cell of bacteria as viewed under microscope is the prepared slide of Gram- negative coccus that has been stained pink. Under total magnification 100x, the cocci are harder to be recognized. It only became more apparent under 400x magnification. Using the wet objectives, Gram-negative cocci is seen much more clearly. However, the structure of the cell
