The MAS-GP adhesive microscope slide surface has an enhanced chemistry coating that is bound on the glass surface and creates a very strong adhesive and hydrophilic surface for tissue sections and cells to adhere to.
The MAS-GP adhesive microscope slide can be widely used for pathology, cytology and immunohistochemistry applications.
The hydrophilic surface of the microscope slide ensures faster draining of the water between the glass surface and the tissue section compared to adhesive slides with a hydrophobic surface. This can help minimize any water being trapped between the tissue section and the microscope slide when the tissue section is being picked up from the water bath. Minimizing the trapped water can increase the area of the tissue section being in direct contact with the adhesive coating on the microscope glass and maximizing the adhesive bond between the tissue section and microscope glass. Thus, creating stronger adhesive properties of the TruBond 360 microscope slide.
Adhesive Mechanism of the MAS-GP Adhesive Microscope Slide:
A coating is applied to the microscope slide surface by a covalent bond of the enhanced 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 MAS-GP 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.
