Tissue-Tek® Coverslipping Film

Coverslipping Film – the clear choice

The Tissue-Tek® Coverslipping Film is the 5th generation of the resin-coated plastic film that eliminates the need for coverglass and liquid mounting medium. It reduces coverslipper maintenance and enables fast coverslipping compared to mounting medium and glass coverslips. 

The Tissue-Tek® Coverslipping Film is validated for use with the Hologic® Thin Prep® Stain Plus Imaging System. It is also ideal for slide scanning and digital imaging, and found to scan 3.7% faster than glass!

Your laboratory can now increase productivity, especially appreciated during daily peak-demand hours, and further reduce user stress levels by forwarding high quality coverslipped slides to the pathologists earlier. Film-coverslipped pathology slides have been shown to have less artifacts after 10 years of storage compared to glass coverslipped slides.
