Cheek cell lab page 1 of 3 cheek cell lab after you have completed the rest of this lab come back to this cover page draw & label a cheek cell with all the parts / organelles you observe under 40x purpose: to observe and identify major animal cell structures and to relate the structure. Prepare a wet mount specimen of eukaryotic animal cells specifically human epithelial cells from the inside of the cheek video by tami (guy) port, chief executive nerd at scienceprofonlinecom for the lab materials that go with this movie, see the virtual microbiology classroom microscopy laboratory. A smear of human cheek epithelial cells are examined under oblique transmitted illumination with the intel play qx3 computer microscope. Observing human cheek cells under a light microscope is a simple way to quickly view a human cell structure many educational facilities use the procedure as an experiment for students to explore the principles of microscopy and the identification of cells observation uses a wet mount process that is. Results 1 - 10 of 128 pp033 - staining and observing cheek epithelial cells an updated procedure to safely look at human cheek cells under the microscope regulations (1996) a defacto ban on α-toluidine, the wonders of octagonal-shaped benches in the lab, using fehling's solution, and using sordaria for more.
Purpose the purpose of this lab is to learn how to prepare a wet mound, to learn proper staining techniques and to examine human cheek cells and onion skin that all cells, no matter if it be plant or animal, will be in beside each other in large groups, that most of the major organelles will be visible through the microscope. Lab activity plant and animal cells part a: plant cells ( onion skin wet mount) 1 peel the delicate transparent tissue from the inner surface of a piece of onion using forceps (tweezers) 2 make a wet mount by placing the tissue, unwrinkled, in a small drop of water on a glass slide 3 add one small drop of lugol's. This lab outlines the procedure for obtaining a check cell sample, preparing a slide, and finding the cells on the slide detailed instructions are given, with additional questions, observations and drawings. This fun experiment requires the use of a microscope stain to better see the cell parts methylene blue is recommended it's easy to find, cheap, and will last you through many experiments materials: toothpick (as wide and flat as you can find ) plain glass slide with coverslip methylene blue one human cheek instructions.

Procedure: animal cells materials microscope microscope slide and coverslip toothpick water methylene blue procedure: wet mount human cheek cells 1 obtain a microscope slide and place a drop of water on the slide 2 gently scrape the toothpick on the inside of your cheek 3 swirl the end of the. Students will obtain cells from their own cheeks, stain them with methylene blue, and examine them under the microscope distinguish between plant and animal cells identify nuclei, chloroplasts, plasma membranes and cell walls under the microscope use a biological stain to visualize nuclei in human cheek cells. For classes with access to a compound microscope, students prepare and examine elodea cells and human cheek cells classes without student worksheet: searching for clues in cells materials needed teacher class group (optional) student • powerpoint presentation: plant and animal cells safety: please. Methylene blue is a common lab stain and is used for many different types of cells methylene blue is an oxidizing in areas where those components are present in the case of the human cheek cell, methylene blue causes the dna in the nucleus to stand out so that the nucleus can clearly been seen in a light microscope.
Biology 171l – general biology lab i lab 5: using the microscope and observing cells and cell structures introduction of all the how do these cheek cells differ from the elodea cells b labeled diagram of human cheek cells make a labeled illustration of your cheek cells lab summary 1 write an introduction. Draw your cells to scale low power should have cells that are fairly small within the viewing field, at high power a cheek cell will take up about half of the viewing field 5 why is methylene blue necessary cells are transparent 6 the light microscope used in the lab is not powerful enough to view other organelles in the. Plants students will identify the parts of a microscope students will observe, manipulate, write and memorize students will also compute total magnification of the objective lenses the lab can be modified to suit higher grade levels using the attached handouts for various observation stations human cheek cell station. As in all animal cells, the cells of the human cheek do not possess a cell wall a cell membrane that is semi-permeable surrounds the cytoplasm unlike plant cells, the cytoplasm in an animal cell is denser, granular and occupies a larger space the vacuole in an an animal cell is smaller in size, or absent the nucleus is.
The human cheek cell : key 1 list the 3 parts of low power should have cells that are fairly small within the viewing field at high power a cheek cell will take up about half of the viewing field 4 why is the light microscope used in the lab is not powerful enough to view other organelles in the cheek cell what parts of. In this activity, students are going to examine an animal cell (a human cheek cell) , and find its organelles such as cell membrane, cytoplasm, and nucleus.
Istic features are also present in plant cells, like cell membranes and using a round-ended toothpick, gently scrape the inside of your cheek the toothpick will pick up cheek cells 2 wipe the cells onto a glass microscope slide and cover warning do not use these human tissue slide preparations if your school is not. Histology lab with answers 1 which feature of the cheek cells stains most prominently with methylene blue the nucleus 2 which structures in your cheek cells are above the limit of resolution of the light microscope all visible structures ie nucleus: nucleolus, cytoplasm cell boundary large cytoplasmic.
Fortunately, epithelial cells are available in abundance from your very own mouth for external examination the epithelial cells we'll be examining in this experiment are from the inside of your cheek and are specifically classified as stratified squamous nonkeratinized epithelium that's a mouthful of biological jargon,. Biology pag 1: microscopy combined science pag b1: microscopy suggested activity 1: examining human cheek cells instructions and answers for teachers & technicians these instructions cover the learner activity section which can be found on page 7 this practical activity supports ocr gcse biology. Lab report purpose: the purpose of this experiment is to determine and observe the difference between an animal cell (cheek cell) and a plant cell (onion cell) also the purpose was to try to determine if one can see the cell better with water or methylene blue under a microscope hypothesis: the hypothesis is believed to. Sketch the cell at low and high power label the nucleus, cytoplasm, and cell membrane of a single cell draw your cells to scale low power high power 5 why is methylene blue necessary 6 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.
