Samples are applied directly to the slide and a coverslip is placed over the sample. One step process limits exposure to reagents and potentially harmful stains.
Each slide contains a dried layer of stain that allows for rapid visualization and differential cell assessment from whole blood and body fluids such as CSF, and urine samples.
CELL-VU® can also be used for World Health Organization and Kruger strict morphology sperm assessment from undiluted semen.
Directions for Use — Pre-Stained Morphology Slides
General chamber preparation for hematology testing.
- Apply a small drop (approximately ~2-4 microliters) of specimen on the center of the slide.
- Place the cover glass (24 x 24 mm or 24 x 40 mm) on top of the slide, exerting slight pressure on the coverglass.
- Allow slide to stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before microscopic observation is made.
These slides are for evaluating sperm head/acrosome size, differentiation of white blood cells in peripheral blood and cytology of body fluids.
EDTA is the recommended anticoagulant for venous blood. Oxalae, flouride and heparinized blood are not suitable.
