The Tissue-Tek® Coverslipping Film is the 5th generation of the resin-coated plastic film that eliminates the need for coverglass and liquid mounting medium.  It reduces coverslipper maintenance and enables fast coverslipping compared to mounting medium and glass coverslips. 

The Coverslipping Film is validated for use with the Hologic®  Thin Prep® Stain Plus Imaging System. It is also ideal for slide scanning and digital imaging, and found to scan 3.7% faster than glass!

Your laboratory can now increase productivity, especially appreciated during daily peak-demand hours, and further reduce user stress levels by forwarding high quality coverslipped slides to the pathologists earlier.

Film coverslipped slides have been shown to have less artifacts after 10 years of storage compared to glass coverslipped slides (click here to read more)
