Nunc manufactures plastic coverslips in several different styles. Plastic coverslips are treated to obtain a surface for good cell attachment and growth. These products have an approximate thickness of 1.0mm and are radiation sterilized. Thermonox coverslips are tissue culture treated on one side to provide an excellent culturing environment. The Termanox plastic is highly resistant to solvents including those commonly used for electron microscopy. Thermanox has a very low dissolved O2 content. Coverslip cuts easily with a scalpel or microtome without shattering. Exhibits low autofluorescence at the 300-500nm wavelength.
