22 x 22mm Chase Brand Microscope Cover Glass #1.5 Thickness 1000/box

SKU: 400160


22mm X 22mm COVER GLASS #1.5 Thickness 1000/box

Microscope cover glass is a very thin square piece of glass that is placed over a drop of liquid on a microscope slide. Because of surface tension, the liquid drop alone tends to sit in a thick dome. With a cover glass in place, the drop is flattened out, allowing the analyst to focus with high power very close to the specimen. The cover glass also confines the specimen to a single plane which reduces the amount of focusing necessary. The cover glass also protects the objective lens from immersion into the liquid.

#1.5 coverslip is recommended for oil immersion or high resolution work.
