The Quick-Read™ Precision Grid microscope slide is designed to provide accuracy, uniformity and safety in the microscopic examination of urinary sediment. Made from optically clear acrylic for optimal viewing, the slide consists of ten chambers. Each chamber has a grid with 81 well defined, pre-measured squares. Each pre-measured square holds a specific volume of urinary sediment which facilitates the convenient and rapid microscopic examination of the cellular elements in each specimen.
To apply the sample to the chamber, place a drop of well-mixed sediment (using Quick-Prep™, a tube and pipette system that isolates 1mL of urine sediment for microscopic examination) into the scalloped area of a numbered chamber on the slide. Capillary action provides uniform distribution of sediment into the viewing chamber. Each chamber has overflow wells for excess urine to prevent cross contamination. Individual slides and specimens can be identified by marking the appropriate numbers on the extreme left and right side of the unit with your own identifying code using a pencil or other marking device. The use of Quick-Read™ provides accuracy, uniformity and safety in the microscopic examination of urinary sediment.
