EasyDip™ Slide Staining System

Made of acetyl polymer, autoclavable


  • Available in 5 different colors
  • Will resist temperatures between -170°C and +121°C (-274°F and 250°F)
  • Uses just 80ml of reagent for 12 slides
  • Use individually or link together as many as you need
  • Resistant to chemicals and dyes
  • Convenient aluminum holder for 6 jars

Finally a user-friendly approach for staining your microscope slides, the EasyDip™ Slide Staining System has two components: a square staining jar and a 12-position vertical slide rack. Jars can be loosely joined to each other laterally, therefore making sure they are kept in the same order when moved around on the lab counter. As an extra benefit, they are available in 5 different colors to help better identify contents or applications.

The staining jar, being made of resistant acetal plastic, will not break like most glass jars do. It will resist to attacks by most staining agents including alcohol and xylene but not phenol. The wide stable base offers greater stability while the inside is recessed, allowing for a smaller reagent volume of only 80ml for 12 slides. Easy to clean and no metals to corrode. Ideal for special stains, frozen sections and special processes. Convenient aluminum stain jar holder can hold 6 containers. Slide Staining Rack and Aluminum 6-Jar Holder sold separately.

Dimensions: 64 x 76 x 92mm H (2.5" x 3" x 3.625" H)

The EasyDip™ Slide Staining Rack will hold up to 12 microscope slides with dimensions such as 25 x 75mm, 3 x 1" and even 26 x 76mm and with a thickness of 1.0 and 1.2mm. The slides fit into individual slots for free passage and rapid drainage of staining fluids. Since they are placed vertically in the rack and not horizontally, their writing area will not be stained by the fluid, allowing their removal without the use of forceps. This staining rack is made of material specially formulated for rapidly drying slides in a microwave processor, or at temperatures up to 121°C (250°F). The lid completely covers the EasyDip™ Slide Staining Jar to minimize spill and evaporation. A handle is permanently attached to the rack for easy insertion and removal of slides without your fingers touching the solution. The base of the rack is placed in the vertical position to secure the slides in place, and is rotated sideways for allowing their easy removal. Available in dark gray only.

Dimensions: 60 x 64 x 97mm H (2.25" x 2.5" x 3.75" H)

Xylene Recycling Pads

Xylene Recycling Pads were developed to allow extended use of xylene. Reusable and long-lasting, Xylene Recycling Pads work on the stain line while specimens are being processed. Available for all brands and styles of automated and hand staining systems; simply match the size of the pad to the size of your reagent vessel.

  • Help to remove stains, dyes, alcohol and water from xylene and xylene substitutes.
  • Guaranteed to save money, time, and energy in your laboratory while helping to produce less chemical waste.
  • Safe, simple and easy to use.
  • For xylene and xylene substitutes.
  • Sized to fit most staining reagent containers.

Note: Not for use with xylene used for deparaffinization.

Immunostain Moisture Chamber

This is a low-cost, high precision moisture chamber for ten slides. Every moisture chamber is divided into ten individual compartments with approximately 12.7mm (1/2") empty space between the compartments. When the chamber lid is closed, eight barrier dividers are placed into the empty spaces between the microscope slide compartments completely isolating all compartments. This is a very desirable feature when doing immunostaining.

The microscope slides are placed on four pedestal posts and four corner posts each 11.5mm (0.460") high, thus raising the surface of the slides approximately 12.7mm (1/2") off the floor to keep the slides away from the water below and making the slides easily retrievable (either by hand or by forcep).

The chamber is fabricated out of heavy-duty polystyrene with an air-tight design to keep moisture in. The chamber is designed to be stackable in order to save counter and/or refrigerator space.

Dimensions: 214 x 175 x 34mm (8.43" x 6.89" x 1.34")

Available in clear, black and amber.

Microwave-assisted Immunostaining on Glass Slides

using the Sequenza™ Slide Rack and Coverplate™ system

 

The Sequenza™ Slide Rack, holding 10 glass slides and Coverplates™, is a system designed for the immunolabeling of sections on glass slides. While originally designed for bench techniques, this system is uniquely suited for microwave-assisted applications. The Slide Rack holds glass slides with a Coverplate™. This combination forms a capillary gap between the slide and the plate. Reagent volumes, especially antibody, are greatly reduced using this versatile system. A reagent hopper forms the uppermost part of the plastic Coverplate™ allowing for easy dispensing of reagent into the capillary gap. Using a PELCO® Microwave Processor with a PELCO ColdSpot®, rapid immunostaining of sections on glass slides is reliable and easy. Go to the Immunolabeling Application Kit for the PELCO BioWave® Pro.

 

Clean with 10% bleach solution and rinse with well water. Sequenza™ Slide Rack and Coverplate™ system is not dishwasher safe.
