Each SlideFile Storage System includes a slide box and a removable tray. A tinted hinged cover makes the contents of the box easy to see at a glance.The base is available in five different colors to help in slide classification and to minimize the possibility of sample mix-up. The key to the SlideFile System is a removable tray inside the storage box having a hundred individual numbered slots. All slides are stored upright for easier insertion and removal. Simply tilt them forward and backward with one finger to easily and rapidly pick up the slide you need. A unique feature with this system is to be able to read bar codes without having to remove the slides from the box. For space saving purposes, you can double the amount of slides simply by storing two slides per slot. For maximum storage space, simply remove the tray and line up 400 slides in 3 rows for long term storage. Will resist temperatures between -80 C and +80 C. Not autoclavable.

Our kit is designed for staining myelin/myelinated axons and Nissil substance on formalin fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue as well as frozen tissue. Our kit is used for identifying the basic neuronal structure in brain or spinal cord sections, and contains a Cresyl Echt Violet counterstain. Using our protocol and the modified formulation, myelinated tissue can be stained in as little as 30 minutes.
The Acid Fast Bacteria (AFB) Stain Kit is intended for use in the histological visualization of Acid Fast Bacteria and Tubercle Bacilli. This kit is a rapid 15-minute procedure. The lipoid capsule of the acid-fast organism takes up carbol fuchsin and resists decolorization.
Acid Fast Organisms: Bright Red
Background: Light Green
These Acid Fast Bacteria (AFB) Animal Control Slides contain sections of positive staining goat intestine and negative staining human lung. The positive control slides are intended to be used to verify histological techniques and reagent reactivity, and are not intended to be used for any quantitative purpose.
Tissues are formaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded, heat dried, and cut at 5 microns unless otherwise specified. Standard tissue placement is mid-range of slide.
