    I recently came by an old Olympus microscope. It has no slide clips but I wanted to try it out. I have no idea of its magnification, but it was used in a lab before it came my way. Can anyone identify the objects in the 'bubbles' in the pics? The slide contained surface scrapes from front teeth. The other pic is a hair at the same magnification to give an idea of scale. Thanks.IMAG1098.jpgIMAG1101.jpgIMAG1098.jpgIMAG1101.jpg
