Epoxy Coated Microscope Slides
Epoxy printed microscope slides have wells created with a hydrophobic coating of epoxy ink having a contact angle approximately 40° with distilled water. These slides have a gloss finish with a coated ink thickness of 20 um. Epoxy coated slides are used for diagnostic immunofluorescence assays (IFA).
The epoxy microscope slides may be used with immunohistochemical (IHC) techniques and immunolabelling with histological sections or cellular cultures. The slides can be sterilized with acetone, methanol, ethanol or any combination and the hydrophobicity will return to its full strength once the solvent has boiled off the surface. The epoxy slides resist enzymatic treatments and microwaves.
The production of the epoxy coated slides are completely automated from beginning to packaging eliminating dirt, dust, flaws and breakage.
Our epoxy slides have 90° corners and ground edges and are sold by the gross of 144 slides with each gross consisting of 2 boxes of 72 slides.
Tekdon offers single well slides all the way up to 192 well slides. We can also make customized microscope slides based on your specific well formation, diameter and location.
