Universal slide rack and staining dish for histology, microbiology and other slide staining needs is made of black polyoxymethylene (POM) plastic which is easy-to-clean and resistant to chemicals used in staining procedures. The Slide Rack holds twenty-five, 25 x 75mm (1 x 3") slides in numbered slots. It has an open bottom for rapid draining and a handle so the rack can be lifted to add or remove slides without touching the staining solution. Maximum use temperature is 90�C (194�F). The Staining Dish has a capacity of 250ml yet only 150ml is needed when using slide rack. This provides a savings on staining liquids, developing fluids and intermediates. The tight lid helps minimize spills and evaporation while the lid inside has a built-in slide rest that also provides a compartment for a drying agent. The dish is easy-to-clean and the cover will not jam in freezer storage.
