ORSAtec slides are in the dimensions 26 x 76 mm (ISO 8037 / I) and the standard thickness from 0.95 to 1.05 mm. Custom sizes and thicknesses are available on request.

Our slides are made from white soda-lime silicate glass, and are washed and polished ready for use.

Soda-lime glass is produced by quartz sand (silica), soda (sodium carbonate) and lime (calcium carbonate) are melted at about 1,200 °C. This results in a silicate glass, whose main components are silicon dioxide (SiO2, 71-75%), sodium oxide (Na2O, 12-16%) and calcium oxide form (CaO, 10-15%) are. [1]

For the production of glasses for microscopy particularly low-iron raw materials are used, since even traces of ferrous ion to a disturbing green coloring. [2]

The raw glass used by us has one of the lowest iron content of the glasses currently available on the market.

It provides high light transmission, excellent color neutrality, low autofluorescence and high chemical resistance.
