An alternative to the standard aluminum slide used to visualize live microscopic organisms (both dorsal and ventral sides) using a pair of coverslips. The holders are made from refined plastic and come in two versions:
The single version, which is designed to hold a pair of cover slips, generally of fixed material, often in gel mount. It allows a specimen to be viewed from both sides on a confocal microscope.
The second version is similar to the first, but in place of it being a single plastic holder, two systems are snapped together and hold a coverslip sandwich in place without the need of any glue. This version holds living material between the coverslips, generally in water.
Both are reusable and made from white ABS plastic.
