Gelatin Coated Microscope Slides

Gelatin microscope slides are coated with a 2% solution of gelatin and chromium potassium placing a permanent positive charge on the microscope slide ensuring a firm electrostatic attraction to the slide of frozen tissue sections, cells and cytology preparations binding them to the glass surface.

The gelatin microscope slides prevent the loss of tissue sections from floating off the slide during frequent washing when carrying out immuno-histochemical staining. Gelatin microscope slides are ideal for cyrosections, histochemical stains, immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization. These slides provide superior tissue adhesion and save laboratory time and money eliminating the need for extra adhesive or coating techniques.
