Human Cheek Cells Under the Microscope
of human cheek cell - First we have to take a clean piece of cotton swab and
scrap the epithelium layer from the inside of our mouth. It is then put on the
previously cleaned slide and smear is prepared. Then a staining solution called
haematoxylin is added as a colour solution. Then the excess stain is removed and
cover slip that is previously cleaned is added to the slide to make it
appropriate for looking under microscope. Then the cheek cells are observed
cheek cells are observed under microscope-
1. Cells are polygonal or
flat in shape and structure –
2. They have irregular
cellular thin boundaries which contains jelly like cytoplasm and the cytoplasm
3. This cell do not have
plastids, vacuoles or cell wall.
4. They are generally made up
of squamous epithelium cells.
Cell Wall – As animal cells do not contain any cell wall .So the cheek cell of the human embryo do not contain any cell wall.
Cell Membrane – Cell membrane are very thin border of the cells of the animal.
Question and Answer on Human Cheek Cells Under the Microscope
1. What is the name of the stain that is used for staining human cheek cell?
Answer: Haematoxylin is used for staining.

Definition of cell wall- The thick and rigid , nonliving covering present just outside the plasma membrane of plant cells is called cell wall. It is discovered by Robert Hooke in 1665 while observing cell in the section of cork.
