Mopec Microscope Slides & Coverslips
High-Quality Charged Slides for Superior adhesion in Histology
Positively Charged. Adhesive. Coated. Charged. Adhesion. Hydrophobic. Hydrophilic. What’s The Difference?
Mopec’s Charged Microscope Slides are the optimal selection for microscope slides within your lab. Often referred to as adhesive slides, enhanced slides, or coated slides, charged slides are chemically enhanced during production to give it a positively-charged surface. This process allows for sample tissue, often negatively charged, to better stick to the surface of the slide.
Charged microscope slides can be hydrophobic, meaning they are water-repellent, or hydrophilic, meaning they are water-absorbent. While some assume that a sample can automatically attach to a hydrophobic slide better due to its water-repellent nature, it’s important to note that the adhesion strength is completely independent of this feature.
Mopec Charged Microscope Slides are hydrophobic, 100% guaranteed against sticking and contamination, come in both 90° and 45° corners, and are available in a variety of colors. If you’re looking for charged slides that are compatible with printing, Mopec also offers Charged Microscope Slides for Inkjet printers.
Mopec IHC Enhanced Hydrophilic Adhesive Slides
Recommended for Use with Ventana® Benchmark staining platform & automated IHC platforms.
Mopec’s IHC Enhanced Hydrophilic Adhesive Slides offer superior tissue adhesion, surface fluidics on the slide, and staining performance. Our proprietary coating ensures incredibly consistent performance even after exposure to heat stress and humid environmental conditions. These enhanced slides are optimized for use with thermal printers.
Mopec’s recommends our IHC Enhanced Hydrophilic Adhesive Slides for use on Ventana® Benchmark staining platform and automated IHC platforms. These microscope slides are manufactured using pure white, ultra-clear, exceptionally flat, low fluorescence glass and are finished with 90° corners.
Mopec Histology Microscope Slides
Explore Mopec’s Non-Charged Frosted Microscope Slides
Mopec’s Regular Microscope Slides, also referred to as Non-Charged, Non-Adhesion or Frosted Slides, can be used for a variety of procedures within your lab. The uniform flat painted surface of the slides allows the user to write or print any identifiers they may need directly on the slide.
Mopec Non-Charged Microscope Slides are hydrophobic, 100% guaranteed against sticking and contamination, come in both 90° and 45° corners, and are available in a variety of colors. If you’re looking for non-adhesion slides that are compatible with printing, Mopec also offers Regular Microscope Slides for Inkjet printers.

Borosilicate glass, #1 thickness, and Ideal for manual & automated coverslipping.
Standard & Custom Positive Control Slides
Control Slides for histology, Special Stains, & IHC
Mopec’s controls are created using human tissue (unless otherwise indicated). In most cases, histology positive control slides can be shipped in 2 business days.
Note: Histology control slides are not quality controlled for IHC methods, and as such, we cannot certify antigenicity. Our control slides are intended to verify histological techniques and reagent reactivity. Review the supplied stained slide with your Pathologist prior to using unstained slides to ensure the intended analyte of interest is acceptable.
