Microscope Cover Slips

Microscope Cover Slips

cover glass, cover slip or coverslip or  is a thin flat piece of transparent material  usually square or rectangular in shape that is placed over objects for viewing with a microscope. The object is usually held between the cover slip and a  thicker microscope slide which rests on the microscope's stage or slide holder and provides the physical support for the object and slip.

Microscope Slides

Microscope Slides

A microscope slide is a thin flat piece of glass, typically 75 by 26 mm and about 1 mm thick and is used to hold objects for examination under a microscope. Typically the object is placed or secured on the slide, and then both are inserted together in the microscope for viewing. This arrangement allows several slide-mounted objects to be quickly inserted and removed from the microscope, labelled, transported, and stored in appropriate slide cases or folders.

Optical Prisms

Optical Prisms

Optical Prisms.

A prism is a transparent optical element with flat polished faces that refract light. The angle, position, and number of faces define the type and function. A prism requires at least two of the flat surfaces must have an angle between them. The exact angles between the surfaces will depend on the application. The usual geometrical shape is that of a triangular prism with a triangle shaped base and rectangular sides. Prisms can be made from any material that can transmit the wavelengths required for the design. Typical materials include BK7, Fused Silica, Germanium, ZnSe etc

Available in custom sizes and coated as per your request
