Microscopes and Slides

Microbe Models 

Click HERE for a description of the plates and models.

IESBVI has a limited number of tactual microbiology models for loan. These are scientifically accurate, three dimensional models of microorganisms that were sculpted by a microbiologist and hand cast in quality polyurethane plastic.  The models of microorganisms are valuable for teaching blind students as well as the sighted.


Microscope Adaptations

Methods for projecting either the dissection or microscope slides.

--use a projector device such as Ladybug to magnify anything onto a whiteboard or screen

--use an iPad or phone to take a photo and then zoom. Be sure it is set to high resolution so detail is clear when zoomed.

--apps such as Smart Microscope which includes some common microscope slides that can be viewed on the computer or the iPad.

--Pupil Cam from Ken-A-Vision fits right over the microscope lens and projects onto a computer screen. The camera plugs into the USB port.(Available on loan from IESBVI)

--ProScope Digital Microscope (from Bodelin Technologies) can be used as a freestanding magnifier which can be good for the dissection. It comes with its own stand and can be used independently or with a microscope. (Available on loan from IESBVI)
