Plastic Treated Microscope Slides

Caplugs Evergreen Plastic Treated Microscope Slides are versatile, low-cost microscope slides that can be used wherever glass slides are used, including sample preparation in the field. They are safer than glass slides because they are more impact resistant than ordinary glass slides. Plastic slides do not leave any sharp edges when broken.

  • Two versions available:
    • General purpose “crystal” polystyrene
    • UVT (UV Transmittable) acrylic
  • Transparency and optical quality are virtually identical to viewing through a flat-bottom microplate well
  • Produced under rigorous quality control conditions for clean and uniform surfaces with low background readings
  • Enhanced protein binding characteristics
  • FDA Registered Medical Device

The surfaces are tissue culture treated and gamma sterilized and can therefore be used with the following applications:

  • Cell and tissue culture studies
  • Immunofluorescence and immunostaining for cytology, histology, parasitology, bacteriology and virology, etc.
  • Immobilization of DNA, nucleic acids, antibodies, proteins and other small molecules
  • Protein printing and microarrays
  • Hybridization studies
  • Dimensions: 75 mm (L) x 25 mm (W) x 1 mm (H)

The slides are not resistant to the following chemicals: ethanol, methanol, phenol, organic acids (e.g.: acetic acid), gasoline, aromatic solvents (e.g.: benzene, toluene, xylene and turpentine), chlorinated hydrocarbons (e.g.: methylene chloride and tetrachloromethane), ketones and others

Made in the U.S.
