The microscopist devotes a considerable amount of time and expertise in the routine preparation of slides. During the course of time, a voluminous quantity of invaluable slides are prepared which require a storage system for protecting, cataloging and retrieving for future referral. Cargille Micro Slide Files combine all of the features for prepared microscope slide storage, protection, simplified cataloging, reduction of filing error and facilitation of retrieval.
Cargille Micro Slide Files contain 48 partitioned compartments which will hold an estimated 1025 mm x 76 mm (1x3") slides per cell (480 slides per case), or 1076 mm x 51 mm (3x2") slides per cell (240 slides per case) by removing two alternate long partitions. A 10 mm (3/8") cushioning space surrounding the partitioned compartment serves as a protective barrier against accidental damage to the stored slides. For other storage needs, all or alternate partitions are removable for conversion to larger size compartments.
For cataloging and slide retrieval, each compartment is numerically indexed to a permanent chart on the underside of the lid which also provides space for identification and other information. A card and holder on the front provides a large area for easy, instant identification of the contents, avoiding tedious and time consuming searching.
Cargille Micro Slide Files provide maximum slide storage capacity in the least amount of space at minimum cost. Micro Slide Files are 24.1 x 15.2 x 8.3 cm in size. They are space efficient and sturdy for stacking on shelves or in cabinets, and for side-by-side storage in drawers. The compact design also permits mobility for working at the microscope to catalog newly prepared slides or to remove stored slides for examination.
