Program These classes are for people wanting or needing instruction on what they see using their microscope.  Please bring your own microscope along with you to use in the class or ask us if we have one available to use. 

You cannot ID the cells you see to the species level.  Often not even to genus.

You can, however, get an idea of how much the KINDS of bacteria or fungi or protozoa, etc. are changing in your tea. 

You can monitor your tea brew hourly if you want to see the changes in organisms as the tea matures.

You need a microscope with 4X, 10X, and 40X objective lenses (that 40X is critical), 10X eyepieces.
