KOVA® Glasstic Slide 10 With Counting Grids

KOVA® Glasstic Slide With Counting Grids – A precision manufactured, 10-chambered disposable microscope slide made of optically clear plastic with a neubauer counting grid. The Glasstic® slide grid is in the focal plane of the specimen, allowing for use over a range of magnifications.

Reduces pipetting errors and eliminates variable that can interfere with microscopic urinalysis:
  -Superior optical plastic with a refractive index that is similar to glass
  -Manufactured to the specifications of high quality optical lenses, smooth with a tolerance below 50
  -Perimeter contained wells for precise volume control, protection of cross-contamination & leakage
  -Easier and faster counting with Neubauer style ruling pattern
  -Capillary action provides reproducible precision
  -Homogeneous suspension of sample sediments
