Cell-VUŽ pre-stained slides combine conventional microscope slides and mthylene blue and cresyl violet stains into a single, ready to use device. Cell-VUŽ pre-stained slides are designed for use in rapid staining and morphological assessment of undiluted spermatozoa. Each slide contains a dried layer of stain that allows for immediate visualization of sperm head, acrosome and tail. Undiluted spermatozoa are applied directly to the slide and a coverslip is placed over the sample. Cell-VUŽ can be used for World Health Organization and Kruger strict morphology assessment. Cell-VUŽ pre-stained slides can also be used for rapid cell evaluation from whole blood, CSF and urine samples.
Prestained Morphology Slides
Direction for use
Apply a small drop (approximately ~2-4 microliters) of specimen on the center of the slide.
Place the cover glass (24 x 24 mm or 24 x 40 mm) on top of the slide, exerting slight pressure on the coverglass.
Allow slide to stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before microscopic observation is made.
These slides are for evaluating sperm head/acrosome size, differentiation of white blood cells in peripheral blood and cytology of body fluids.
EDTA is the recommended anticoagulant for venous blood. Oxalae, flouride and heparinized blood are not suitable.
