I'm doing an experiment on Osmotic Pressure in Red Blood Cells.  Will be 
adding different amounts of sodium chloride, glucose and water to a sample 
of blood under a microscope.  What is the best was to add the solutions to 
the slide without losing the particular red blood cell on the slide? 
Results looking for: at what composition of salt to water, glucose to 
water will make the blood cells burst.  Thanks for your help.
