DRM-900 Pre-Stained Morphology Slides

CELL-VU® pre-stained Hematology/ Morphology slides combine conventional microscope slides with a combination of methylene blue and cresyl violet stains into a single, ready to use device.

Samples are applied directly to the slide and a coverslip is placed over the sample. One step process limits exposure to reagents and potentially harmful stains.

Each slide contains a dried layer of stain that allows for rapid visualization and differential cell assessment from whole blood and body fluids such as CSF, and urine samples.

CELL-VU® can also be used for World Health Organization and Kruger strict morphology sperm assessment from undiluted semen.

Directions for Use — Pre-Stained Morphology Slides

General chamber preparation for hematology testing.

Apply a small drop (approximately ~2-4 microliters) of specimen on the center of the slide.

Place the cover glass (24 x 24 mm or 24 x 40 mm) on top of the slide, exerting slight pressure on the coverglass.

Allow slide to stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before microscopic observation is made.

Expected Findings:

These slides are for evaluating sperm head/acrosome size, differentiation of white blood cells in peripheral blood and cytology of body fluids.

Warnings:

EDTA is the recommended anticoagulant for venous blood. Oxalae, flouride and heparinized blood are not suitable.
