Comparative Study on Preparation of Botanical Permanent Slides by Different Methods
- In the study of biology and medicine, historical permanent slides are widely demanded for effective teaching and learning. Thus the main aim of this paper is to prepare botanical permanent slides by different methods and to study their quality. Sandoricum koetjape Merr. (Thit-to) and Eupatorium odoratum L. (Bi-zat) growing in University of Yangon campus were selected. The selected samples can mainly support the biological study (in Basic Education High School (BEHS) level and undergraduate level. It may be useful for school and college students to know the technique of preparing histological slides as a part of their study of biology. In this paper, permanent slides for histological study in plants were prepared by tertiary butyl alcohol (TBA), xylene-alcohol method and free hand technique. The quality of 537 permanent slides out of 1100 slides were classified as class A. TBA method was found to be the best and cost effective in this work.
