Pre-Stained Morphology SlidesDRM-900

Description

These slides are used for the staining of spermatozoa, blood, CSF, and urine cytology. Each slide contains a dried layer of stain that once in contact with cells, facilitates morphology assessment.  Cell-VU® provides cleaner and clearer slides for rapid cellular visualization and differential cell assessment.

CELL-VU® Pre-stained Morphology slides combine conventional microscope slides with a proprietary 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.

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

Directions for Use - PreStained Morphology Slides

STEP 1

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

NOTE: EDTA is the recommended anticoagulant for venous blood. Flouride oxalate and heparinized blood are NOT suitable.

STEP 2

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

STEP 3

Allow the slide to stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before microscopic observation is made.  The slides are used for evaluating sperm head/acrosome size, differentiation of white blood cells in peripheral blood and cytology of body fluids.
