Silicone Isolator Application


Q: Do the non-adhesive reusable isolators adhere to the glass slide and allow a small volume of liquid to be contained?  Are the isolators with adhesive more effective?

A: Typically for most applications, the silicone isolator (without PSA) adheres very well and can be removed easily.
