A medical sample?

Not quite! Its actually a paper and plastic CD slip case photographed at 40X. Because of the minimal depth of field when shotting thru a microscope I couldnt get both the surface, with the bubbles on, and the fibrous part below both in focus, so I took two photographs at different focus points and combined them as layers in Photoshop. The two layers overlapped slightly due to focus shift but I left the borders in.

Optics, 10X eyepiece and 4X Meiji flat field objective.

This is the word go as displayed on my book reader (Sony PRS 300), and viewed through my microscope at 40X.
