PELCO microscope slide stain saver kits
PELCO Stain Saver Kits
reduce your volume of antibody and consumables to save money
- The unique design delivers significant primary and secondary antibody cost savings (up to 90%)
- Designed to create a capillary gap between 1 in. x 3 in. or 2 in. x 3 in. slides and any size or shape coverslip for those slides
- There are two designs: the T-1 for single antibody staining and the T-2 designed for staining two tissues with 2 different antibodies on the same slide
- Perfect for conventional staining protocols
This unique staining device is a breakthrough in cost-savings for immunohistochemistry. For the first time it is possible to create a capillary gap for slides or coverslips using one simple device. There are no expensive consumables, as with other products. The design of the PELCO Stain Saver will limit the amount of precious antibody to less than 200ul for a 22 x 22mm (#2 thickness) coverslip-sized area. Total stainable area on a slide or coverslip can be up to 24 x 50mm (21092).

Either design will accommodate round or square coverslips. The tissue to be labeled can be on a coverslip or slide because both are employed to create a uniform capillary gap. The unique adhesive properties of the mesas, in the design of the PELCO Stain Saver, provide adhesion of either Thermanox or glass coverslips to the mesa tops. For conventional immunohistochemistry (overnight or longer incubations) the PELCO Storage Box serves as an ideal humid chamber. Each kit contains a staining pad insert inside a black box. T-1 and 2 kits will accommodate 3 each 1 in. x 3 in. or 1 each 2 in. x 3 in. slides. The capillary gap with a #2 coverslip is 320um.
PEL21092 - T-1 Kit (insert and black box) is designed for any shape or size coverslip for 1" x 3" or 2" x 3" slides
PEL21095 - T-2 Kit is designed when two tissues are to be stained with two different antibodies, coverslip size 22 x 22mm or smaller
