Finally a user-friendly approach for staining your microscope slides, the EasyDip™ Slide Staining System has two components: a square staining jar and a 12-position vertical slide rack. Jars can be loosely joined to each other laterally, therefore making sure they are kept in the same order when moved around on the lab counter. As an extra benefit, they are available in 5 different colors to help better identify contents or applications.

The staining jar, being made of resistant acetal plastic, will not break like most glass jars do. It will resist to attacks by most staining agents including alcohol and xylene but not phenol. The wide stable base offers greater stability while the inside is recessed, allowing for a smaller reagent volume of only 80ml for 12 slides. Easy to clean and no metals to corrode. Ideal for special stains, frozen sections and special processes. Convenient aluminum stain jar holder can hold 6 containers. Slide Staining Rack and Aluminum 6-Jar Holder sold separately.

Dimensions: 64 x 76 x 92mm H (2.5" x 3" x 3.625" H)

The EasyDip™ Slide Staining Rack will hold up to 12 microscope slides with dimensions such as 25 x 75mm, 3 x 1" and even 26 x 76mm and with a thickness of 1.0 and 1.2mm. The slides fit into individual slots for free passage and rapid drainage of staining fluids. Since they are placed vertically in the rack and not horizontally, their writing area will not be stained by the fluid, allowing their removal without the use of forceps. This staining rack is made of material specially formulated for rapidly drying slides in a microwave processor, or at temperatures up to 121°C (250°F). The lid completely covers the EasyDip™ Slide Staining Jar to minimize spill and evaporation. A handle is permanently attached to the rack for easy insertion and removal of slides without your fingers touching the solution. The base of the rack is placed in the vertical position to secure the slides in place, and is rotated sideways for allowing their easy removal. Available in dark gray only.

Dimensions: 60 x 64 x 97mm H (2.25" x 2.5" x 3.75" H)
