How do you make a hanging-drop slide?
To make a hanging drop slide, you will need: -a depression slide -a square coverslip -some petrolatum -the liquid suspension of what you wish to view Place a small spot of petrolatum on each of the 4 corners of the coverslip. Place a drop of your suspension in the center of the coverslip. Invert a depression slide over the drop, allowing the petrolatum to attach the coverslip to the depression slide. Quickly (but carefully) invert the slide so that the coverslip is oriented "up", and the drop is hanging into the slide depression.
