Microscope slide, quartz, standard size

Quartz Glass Microscope Slides and Cover Slips are a necessity for microscopy applications where UV transparency is needed. They can also be used for high end microscopy applications to reduce signal loss due to absorption. Other applications can involve UV radiation transparency. The quartz slides can also be used for high temperature applications up to 1250C. Above this temperature the material will start to soften. The quartz material used to manufacture our high quality quartz microscope slides and coverslips is the GE 124 type high purity fused quartz, a well documented quartz used over decades in microscopy applications. Transparency is provided for 0.19 to 4.2um with very low absorbance in the 0.26 to 2.6um range. Surface flatness is +/- 1 degree with 60/40 scratch/dig specifications.
Quartz coverslips are available in several sizes and thicknesses, although for most microscopy applications the 0.25mm thickness is adequate. Tolerance is +/- 127um.

Size: 76.2mm x 25.4mm, 1mm thick
