  • The Hydrophilic Plus slides are novel positively-charged slides for IHC, ICC, FISH and CISH with significantly improved tissue-adhesion characteristics compared to other commercially available slides.
  • The Hydrophilic Plus slides are superior in their ability to retain tissues that otherwise tend to detach from slides after thermal epitope retrieval procedures (HIER).
  • The Hydrophilic Plus slides carry approximately three-times the number of positive charges compared to other commercially available slides.
  • Unlike other commercially available positively-charged slides, which all have hydrophobic working surfaces, the Hydrophilic Plus slides are strongly hydrophilic. The Hydrophilic surface reduces tissue wrinkling during mounting and facilitates water-based reagent application, which may improve staining and produce less background.

Characteristics of the Hydrophilic Slides

  • The Hydrophilic Plus glass slides are strongly hydrophilic.
  • The Hydrophilic Plus glass slides carry approximately three times the number of positive charges compared to commercial positively-charged slides.
  • All commercially available positively-charged microscope slides were found to be hydrophobic.
  • The Hydrophilic Plus glass slides display improved tissue-adhesion characteristics compared to other commercially available slides.
