A coverslipper for histology is a machine that is used to apply a thin layer of liquid plastic or resin onto a microscope slide in order to cover and protect the tissue samples or other materials on the slide. This process, known as coverslipping, is a crucial step in preparing slides for microscopic examination.
Coverslipping is important for several reasons. Firstly, it helps to protect the samples on the slide from damage or contamination. It also helps to keep the samples in place, ensuring that they are properly positioned for viewing under the microscope. Finally, coverslipping allows for the slides to be easily and conveniently stored, transported, and handled without worrying about the samples coming loose or being damaged.
Coverslippers for histology are specifically designed to meet the needs of histology laboratories. They are typically used in conjunction with other histology equipment and supplies, such as tissue processors, embedding centers, slide stainers, and microtomes, to prepare tissue samples for microscopic examination.
