Clear, non-corrosive and non-fogging, these 18 X 18mm cover slips provide two purposes in the laboratory. To use a cover slip properly, place the slip at an angle over the slide, one edge touching the slide and lower it as if it was hinged. If done properly the liquid will force out any air as the cover glass closes over the slide and no bubbles will be trapped beneath the glass. Large numbers of air bubbles can make a specimen difficult to view. If it is a larger specimen, Concave Slides are recommended. Microscope Slide Cover Slips are used to protect specimens set on your Blank Microscope Slides.
