The Corning Glass Square Microscope Slide Cover is a square slide cover slip used to hold a slide specimen in place and protect it from accidental contact with the microscope lens. The zinc titania glass cover is used in high-resolution microscopy, and packaged in a reusable box for protection during storage. The edges of the slip are rounded for safe handling. The square cover is used in dry or wet mounts for high-resolution microscopes in medical, hydrological, and pathological laboratory settings.
