OptiPlus™ Positive-Charged Microscope Slides provide a strong adhesive surface for tissues and cells to prevent tissue displacement during harsh pre-treatments such as enzymatic digestion and the microwave Antigen Retrieval method. These slides are ideal for automated systems. Additionally, each slide has a frosted end for easy labeling.
The OptiPlus™ Positive-Charged Barrier Slides have all the advantages of our regular OptiPlus™slides, but also contain hydrophobic barriers that allow the quantity of reagents per slide to be tailored to the size of the specimen. These slides eliminate reagent waste
without the need to use a PAP pen, thereby reducing set-up time in manual assays as well as in automated systems. The slides come in three different configurations to accommodate different tissue sizes or multiple tissues per slide:
1. A single, full-size test area of 25 x 50 mm
2. A single 2/3-size test area of 25 x 30 mm, and
3. Three 1/3-size test areas per slide, each compartment measuring 25 x 15 mm
