Microscopes enable scientists and students to study the cell structure of plants and animals. The crystal structure of minerals and the content of a drop of pond water can also be observed. Microscope glass slides and coverslips are used to mount or place specimens in an easy-to-handle manner and to protect specimens from cross-contamination. In simple terms, microscope glass slides and coverslips "cover" and fix the sample in place so that scientists can observe it with a microscope.
(1) Definition of microscope glass slide
The microscope glass slide is a long thin glass slide that places the specimen under the microscope for research. Since many are fragile and microscopic, it is easier to manipulate slides rather than specimens to the best position for viewing. The size of the slide rail is usually three inches by one inch. In addition to glass, the slide rail can also be made of transparent plastic. Some slides have small depressions that can hold liquid for wet installation. Wet slides are sliding that place liquid (usually stains) on the sample. Stains help you to better observe creatures by highlighting various features.
(2) Microscope glass slides in flat styles and concave styles
The most basic of all microscope glass slides is a flat rectangular soda-lime glass, borosilicate covered glass or plastic, with ground edges.
All corners are 90-degree acute angles. If handled carelessly, the edges will be rough, which will cause minor cuts on your fingers.
The top and/or bottom edge of the glass slide can be frosted, allowing easy marking of samples for identification and/or orientation. The etched matte keeps all pen markings safely away from the sample, and the matte color chosen provides other sorting methods.
Both general and frosted glass slides can be selected with rounded safety angles to prevent accidental cuts, and chamfered edges with chamfers, which are very suitable for blood samples.
Concave Microscope glass slides contain one or more surface depressions and are ideal for liquid solutions and larger samples. These more expensive microscope glass slides can be used without a cover.
Some manufacturers produce plastic cavities with a predetermined number of slides with lids.
How to use it? Quickly view calibrated wells or flasks filled with water without the need to prepare or clip individual slides to the microscope stage, which makes it particularly suitable for sediment research, such as urine analysis; in addition, some tray designs can be placed in an incubator or refrigerator to study the cultured samples.
(3) Functions of microscope glass slide
Microscope glass slides are especially useful for educational purposes and for those who do not want to do tedious slide creation work. Prepared microscope glass slides are available in all scientific fields, including: biology, botany, zoology, human anatomy Science, marine biology, pathology, etc.
The prepared m1icroscope glass slides also provide passages for bacteria, animal tissues, marine organisms, diseased cells and other specimens, which may not be easy to obtain for students or amateurs.
In addition, they can also be used as controls for students and researchers to compare collected samples. Prepared slides can be purchased in sets are almost always permanent, and can be reused indefinitely.
Whether you are installing samples, pipetting liquids into wells or using prepared slides, microscope glass slides can provide tools with specimens while viewing under magnification.
Lighting on the stage of the compound optical microscope, you can see an amazing new world scene with the simple action of placing the sample on the glass slide.
