Technically not just microbes, but look who’s come to join us in the department!
I used to work in a microbiology department of a hospital and we (well, the lab) had one Giant Furry Microbe. I couldn’t even tell you now which one it was, but they were quite difficult to get hold of all those years ago. Now, with an online UK shop, they’re easy to buy. Here they are divided into human cells and bacteria, virus and fungus cells.
I think my favourite is the antibody followed by the sperm (just because of the cute little bow). Now to use them in lessons!
