Giammara-Hanker Cast-A-Slide Translucent Mold
Silicone rubber slide mold. Produces 2 slides, 1″ x 3″ (25 x 75mm). See reference below. Fixed vibratory microtome sections or cytochemically stained cells, post-fixed with osmium tetroxide, are dehydrated and infiltrated with resin by routine or rapid embedding methods. The sample is placed into a mold recess and resin teased to the edges. Photomicrography may be performed. Selected specimens are excised, glued to blank blocks with cyanoacrylate adhesive and are then sectioned for ultramicroscopy. Translucent.
