Consumable of the month

Do you order laboratory consumable items from us online or via our order form?  If you need just one blood tube or swab, or enough for a herd, we’ve got you covered.

Our featured consumable item in August is microscope slide holders / cases.

These slide holders are essential if you ever need to send glass microscope slides to the laboratory for testing.  Whether it be cytology smears or blood films with your EDTA for CBC, every clinic needs to have a stash of these available. 

When glass slides are submitted without the protection of a slide holder, they mostly arrive broken into pieces and are unsuitable for testing (as well as being hazardous to staff handling them).  So don’t waste your client’s time and yours sending slides naked, always use a slide holder!

They are available from our online shop in two sizes – single-slide or 4-slide.  The holders are very sturdy and reusable, so you can label them with your clinic name and we will return them to you.

Please note: Ensure each individual slide is labelled (in pencil) with the client’s name and not just the slide holder.  If smears from more than one site are submitted, also ensure the site is written on the slide along with the client name.

If you tune into our Facebook page this month, you could win your clinic a set of 10 single slide holders in our monthly giveaway!
