1. Adjustable Cover Glass Parts:
A & B are end Plates with grooves for accepting the cover slips
C & D are Holding Rails, to connect plate A to plate B together
Rod E is used as a Handle when screw-in the plate A
Hex-key F is used to tighten all reset screws. (see photo above)
2. Adjusting the Plates as shown in Figure 2:
- For Cover slip from 5mm to 27mm use Bar Set C
- For Cover slip larger than 27mm, used Bar Set D
Using Hex Key F to set End Plate A & B together with Holding Rails C or D. Never over-tighten these plastic screws.
Determining the distance between plate A & B to fit the cover slip to be used for staining: measure the inside distance between A & B. This number is measured in millimeters then add 2, the result is the cover slip length which you want to place in this holder. For example, your cover slip length you want to place in this holder is 25 mm, then you have to set the inside distance between Plate A & B is 23 mm. (23 + 2 = 25)
3. Screw the Handle D the plate A.
4. Clean the Rack
Immediately after each use clean the rack by dipping the rack in alcohol or acetone then rinsing it well with water to remove all residues. Keep all parts together in the original box for next use.
