The APS adhesive microscope slide surface is coated with an aminosilane coating that is bound on the glass surface and creates a very strong adhesive surface for tissue sections and cells to adhere to.

The APS adhesive microscope slide can be widely used for pathology, cytology and immunohistochemistry applications.


Adhesive Mechanism of the APS Adhesive Microscope Slides:

A coating is applied to the microscope slide surface by a covalent bond of the aminosilane and OH groups to produce a strong positive charge on the slide.  Tissue sections, having a negative charge, will be attracted to the surface of the glass and adhere to it.  The APS adhesive microscope slide has a high tissue section & cell adhesive strength.  The microscope slide is highly durable to thermal treatment particularly with microwave and autoclave.
