Improved Bonding Means Better Results
Microscopic diagnostics are vital to the performance of the clinical microbiology laboratory. Ensuring that a sample adheres to a microscope slide has typically required the use of either heat or methanol fixation, or adhesives like bovine albumin and PVA. Heat fixation can severely alter organism and tissue morphology, while methanol carries both toxicity and flammability hazards, and added adhesives are subject to contamination, can require extensive drying times and create competitive staining. Removing albumin-based reagents can significantly reduce the chance of specimen contamination and false-positive staining results.
CELL-BONDTM Adhesive Slides can overcome these issues with a unique non-albumin-based, highly wettable, bio-adhesive coating that allows for rapid sample bonding without the use of heat treatment, methanol fixation, or external adhesives. They decrease competitive background staining, leading to increased microscopic clarity. Adopting CELL-BOND Slides in your lab can allow for easier, more efficient microscopic diagnostics.
