Plant Cell Model

From the Carolina Supply Company site:

Enlarged view of a typical plant cell as viewed under an electron microscope. Important organelles are shown in raised relief and vibrantly colored. On removable base. Size, 20 x 14 x 32 cm.

Study the structure of a typical plant cell using this greatly enlarged model (magnified 500,000 to 1,000,000x life size). Important organelles are shown in raised relief within the cytoplasm and are depicted in full form and cross section. The cell wall, cell membrane, nucleus, Golgi apparatus, ribosomes, chloroplasts, mitochondria, and smooth and rough endoplasmic reticulum are shown. Organelles cannot be removed from the model, eliminating the chance of losing them. However, the entire model can be removed from the base, which depicts adjacent monochromatic plant cells. Size, 20 x 14 x 32 cm.

Strengths: 
  • Color differentiation of organelles makes for more easy differentiation
  • Large size
  • Tactile structures

 

Limitations: 
  • It is difficult to differentiate the mitochondria and the chloroplasts on the plant model tactually.
