Bottom slide

  • dimensions: approx 127.8 x 85.5 mm, thickness approx. 1 mm
  • with superhydrophobic glass surface
  • covered with a 0.06 mm high spacer. This spacer has 96 recesses of 7 mm diameter. They are consistent with the SBS format for robotic handling. The spacer has an adhesive surface to which the hydrophobic coverslip attaches. The crystallization drops are, hence, sealed in these reaction chambers.

Cover slip

  • dimensions: approx 112 x 77 mm, thickness No. 1.5 (0.16 to 0.19 mm)
  • with superhydrophobic glass surface
  • optimized for bright field, UV and fluorescent microscopy
