Permanox™ is a strong, biologically inert material resistant to non-chlorinated hydrocarbons, acetone, and other EM reagents. Permanox™ slides allow you to do cell fixation and staining on the slide; they can be cut with scissors. Permanox™ has not been shown to be autofluorescent. All of the microscope slides are 1″ x 3″.
NOTE: Long exposure to solvents will cause the slide to warp. Xylene and Toluene based mounting media should be avoided. Glycerol, gelatin, and other aqueous based media are recommended.
