Q:  My hybridization cocktail contains Formamide , will HybriSlips™ work with this reagent?

A:  Yes, HypriSlips™ are chemically resistant to most commonly used hybridization reagents.  For a full list of chemical compatibilities you can consult many of the tables that are available on-line and search: polycarbonate.

Q:  What is the best method to use for removing  a HybriSlip™ from atop my specimen?

A:   To minimize the surface tension between the HybriSlip™ and your specimen, we recommend dipping slides into a dish contain wash buffer and allowing the HybriSlip™ to slide off gently.  Peeling them off, just as with glass coverslips, is not recommended as this can compromise sample adherence and morphology.

Q:  How can I sterilize our HybriSlips™?

A:  Using sterile technique, remove the liners from both surfaces of the product followed by one of the following options:  dipping them into 70% isopropanol  and allowing them to dry,  using  UV sterilization in the hood, or lightly flaming them and allowing them to cool before use.  You may also autoclave the HybriSlips™ – first remove the liners (they melt).  

Q: What is the refractive index of the polycarbonate?

A:  The refractive index of the polycarbonate used to manufacture HybriSlips™  is 1.586

Q: What is the working temperature range for HybriSlip™ material?

A:  Materials remain stable between  minus  135 to 121oC
