This 72-pack of premium quality, pre-cleaned frosted microscope slides is suitable for most medical or research lab work. The slides are 75 mm x 25 mm, 1 mm thick, and include a smooth frosted finish for quick labeling.
Logitech glass microscope slides are used for the permanent mounting of thin rock, concrete and soil thin sections.These microscope slides are manufactured to stringent production quality control procedures, ensuring flatness and the elimination of bubbles, seeds, striae and other imperfections.
VWR supplies microscope slides for cytology, histology, and general microbiology applications. Glass microscope slides for staining experiments are constructed of high quality sheet glass and soda-lime glass; economical options include disposable clear vinyl or standard sheet glass slides. Choose plain or frosted products with or without coverslips. Clipped or beveled corners are offered as well as color-coded and markable slides for organization. Purchase blank slides or prepared microscope slides in your choice of dimensions and thickness in packs or larger cases. Storage boxes for microscope slides of various sizes and materials are also available.
Transportation and storage conditions considerably affect the quality and performance of microscope slides. Microscope slides should be stored in a dry place at constant room temperature. Slides should be stored on a pallet or shelf and not directly on a floor. Do not store slides and solvents together as the slide surface can turn hydrophobic. If the temperature is constantly warming and cooling, condensation may occur, which can cause sticking of the slides. We also recommend, when shipping to a customer, instruct them to allow the slides to reach room temperature prior to opening the cartons and using them.
These are important to labs where a lot of slides are produced and the lab needs to index the slides by type: white=bone samples, green=blood, etc. All the labels can be written on with pencil or felt-tip pen (sometimes ball-point).
Now all of these slides are flat, which is fine for samples that need to be laid flat. This is fine for solid samples, or for liquids that are to be flattened underneath a cover slip. This is fine for observing dead materials, but what if you wish to observe living organism from say pond water or other sources? This is where concave slides come into play:
Having a set of blank slides (and cover slips) at the ready is almost a requirement for owning a telescope. They are inexpensive and good to have when you find a new item to examine. Slide preparing kits can also help with stains and other materials to help prepare slides for viewing. Be sure to have some of these around if you plan to properly use your microscope.www.spectrum-scientifics.com

The field of Pathology is undergoing a transformation in which digital imaging is becoming increasingly important. This transformation is fueled by the commercial availability of instruments for digitizing microscope slides. The whole-slide images (WSI) made by digitizing microscope slides at diagnostic resolution are very large. In addition to the size of WSI, the access characteristics of these images differ from other images presently stored in PACS systems. Pathologists need the ability to rapidly pan and zoom images, referred to as virtual microscopy.
In order to facilitate adoption of digital Pathology imaging into hospitals and laboratories, it is desirable that instruments that acquire WSI digital slides store these images into commercially available PACS systems using DICOM-standard messaging. Once this is done, the PACS systems capabilities for storing, archiving, retrieving, searching, and managing images can be leveraged for these new types of images. Additionally, a given case or experiment may comprise images from multiple modalities, including Radiology and Pathology, and all the images for a case or experiment could be managed together in a PACS system.
Whole slide images (WSI) are large. A typical sample may be 20mm x 15mm in size, and may be digitized with a resolution of .25 micrometers/pixel (conventionally described as microns per pixel, or mpp) Most optical microscopes have an eyepiece which provides 10X magnification, so using a 40X objective lens actually results in 400X magnification. Although instruments which digitize microscope slides do not use an eyepiece and may not use microscope objective lenses, by convention images captured with a resolution of .25mpp are referred to as 40X, images captured with a resolution of .5mpp are referred to as 20X, etc. The resulting image is therefore about 80,000 x 60,000 pixels, or 4.8Gp. Images are usually captured with 24-bit color, so the image data size is about 15GB.
Some instruments which digitize microscope slides do not capture all areas of the slide at the highest resolution. In this case the image data within any one level of the conceptual pyramid may be sparse, i.e., lacking some of the tiles.
In addition to viewing glass slides with traditional microscopes, students now have access to the SPBMD Online Laboratory Manual, a web-based interface that allows them to view high-resolution histological slides online. CCNMTL collaborated with the College of Physicians and Surgeons, the Dean of Scholarly Resources, and the CUMC campus network group to coordinate the installation and configuration of the technology, which was created by Aperio, a company specializing in digital pathology management systems. 041b061a72
