Plain Microscope Slides 1" x 3"
Standard microscope slides are 1" x 3" and are made from glass and are approximately 1mm to 1.2mm thick. The object or specimen to be viewed is placed on the middle of the slide with another much thinner square, circle or rectangle glass (cover slip) placed over the specimen. Slides must be held by the edges because fingerprints on the slide or cover slips will result in difficulty seeing the object of study clearly. This is very critical when viewing a specimen underwater because air bubbles and fingerprints will render it impossible to properly study the specimen. 15 packs. Each ...
Single Concave Microscope Slides
Single concave glass slides are ideal for studying live micro organisms because of a single depression well in the middle of the slide. The dip is .5 mm to .8 mm deep which is perfect for viewing liquids like pond water. Larger organisms won't be damaged or squashed when you apply the slip cover and the water is prevented from drying out as quickly as with a plain glass slide. This reusable microscope slide has ground edges and measures 1" x 3" and is 1 mm to 1.3 mm thick. 3 packs. Each pack includes 72 slides. Minimum order quantity: 3 packs. ...
