MICROCROWN up-drawn soda-lime glass has one of the lowest iron contents in the market today.
It has high luminous transmittance and an excellent colorless appearance. MICROCROWN is available as sheet glass in a thickness of 1.0 mm.
Its unique composition makes MICROCROWN an excellent glass for microscope slides where low auto-fluorescence and chemical resistance are required.
Spectral transmittance for MICROCROWN microscopy glass
MICROCROWN is marked by high transmission in the total UV-A spectrum. This is a decisive factor for using MICROCROWN in fluorescence microscopy. Optical Properties:
The refractive index of ne
= 1.5251 ± 0.001 is finely adapted to our cover glass for microscopy, D 263® M Cover Glass
. As a result, unwanted reflections are eliminated and high-definition images become possible. Chemical Properties:
The excellent chemical properties of MICROCROWN enable prepared slides to be stored and analyzed for longer periods (cf. DIN-ISO 719 - class HGB 3).
