Caution: The colour representation at your screen can differ to the colouring of the products.
Microscope Slides are available with cut or ground edges. Cut edges remain untreated and are primarily used in manual processes.
Microscope slides with ground edges are suitable for automated dyeing, coverslipping and printing processes, because of their different designs. Ground edges can avoid cuttings of the user.
The slides are manufactured from soda-lime glass with the so called float process and are particularly suitable for medical laboratories. Other dimensions, thicknesses or glass material on request.
The slides are available with a coloured end. Operators can classify the colour coding to person, disease or anything else. These slides are suitable for common printing systems and labeling with pens.
Slides: Adhesive and Advanced Adhesive
The special surface treatment with silane-coating forms permanent, free polar bonds on the surface, which also through electrostatic attraction ensures cell-and-tissue-adhesion and supports the forming of covalent bonds between the tissue and the glass surface.
Tissue and cell substrates stick rapidly on our adhesive slides without using further adhesives or protein coating media. This saves costly and time consuming preparation-techniques.
The advantage of our adhesive slides is the restriction of the adhesive coating to the top surface of our slides and therefore to the usable area only. On our adhesive slides the under side is untreated therefore the slides do not tend to stick when stacked or transported and difficulties with marking are also avoided.
Our adhesive slides do not show striae and disturbing background colouration such as the blue or red background obtained with Haematoxylin and Eosin-staining of tissues, or the brown background obtained during the Immunoperoxidase or In-situ-DNS-Hybridisation process.
The adhesive slides are free of RNS-ase and thermally treatable up to 120°C.
Special microscope slides with reactions fields printed in black for medical diagnostics. Further colours are white, red, green and blue. 45° ground edges and available with or without frosted ends. The Epoxy- or PTFE-coatings of our diagnostic slides are highly resistant to nearly all the common solutions used in laboratories without changing their hydrophobic function and are prepared for multiple uses e.g. in autoclaves.
Furthermore diagnostic slides can be provided with a hydrophylic coating. It helps to pick up and fix tissues as well as body fluids without adding mounting media or protein coatings.
Diagnostic slides can be manufactured in small quantitites on request.
90° Clipped Corners
Slides with 90° clipped corners are particularly suiatable for automated processes. Always note the specification of the manufacturer!
