Wet mount

A lot of objects that are going to be viewed on a microscope slide are prepared as a damp mount using water. Other materials are used when a everlasting slide is being prepared for viewing and storage. In a wet mount, the specimen is placed at the center of the slide with one drops of water and the cover glass placed over the specimen. In some preparations, the object being prepared for viewing is contained within water. Special slides are obtainable for viewing mounts that require more than one or two drops of water.
