Overview

Rave Scientific offers the premier quality Micro-Tec glass microscope slides are made from optically clear and corrosion resistant select quality soda lime glass. All slides comprise precision ground edges are are pre-cleaned. This low iron soda lime glass has no notable interference from UV light in the 250-350nm range. Currently available slides are:

  • Standard plain slides, 75 x 25mm, with precision ground edges,
  • Large plain slides, 76 x 51mm, with precision ground edges.
  • Concavity slides ,76 x 25mm, with optically clear single well or double wells. Ideal for liquid samples and tissue cultures.  Well size is 15mm diameter and 0.5-0.55mm deep.

Features and benefits of the CMC correlative microscopy coverslips:

  • Good optical quality in brightfield and fluorescence microscopy
  • Excellent transparency
  • Use temperature range -196°C to +100°C
  • Rigid – does not float in the middle of culture
  • Resistant to normal chemicals used in electron microscopy
  • No oxygen retention; compatible with LR white resin
  • Simple sterilization using alcohol or UV
  • Easy to handle and easy to cut with a knife or punch
  • Choice of three different field proven patterns
  • Low cost
