ISOSLIDE® control slides

ISOSLIDE® Control Slides: Quality Control made easy for Histology

ISOSLIDE® control slides are indispensable for reliable results and complete monitoring of process quality in the histological laboratory.


There are plenty of reasons for sub-optimal staining of tissue samples, either caused by technical issues or human error. Both scenarios can be monitored and countered if suitable controls are included in every experiment and routine staining along the tissue samples.

For this purpose, Merck Millipore now offers ISOSLIDE® control slides.
Our ISOSLIDE® control slides offer the option of comparing control tissue specimens with your own preparations during the histological staining process. You can use the ready-to-use staining solutions  and kits from Merck Millipore or simply apply your laboratory’s own method. The ISOSLIDE® control slides are CE certified and, as an IVD product, are subject to comprehensive quality and process documentation, which is indispensable for a laboratory accreditation and audits.


Your benefits:
  • 25 slides in one Box (24 unstained preparations, 1 pre-stained slide)
  • All slides prepared from the same block of animal tissue (one Box contains one Batch)
  • Corresponding staining solutions and kits available from Merck Millipore, laboratory’s own staining procedures can also be applied
  • Guaranteed detection of respective structures
  • Analysis certificate that documents the quality of the control specimens is available for each batch
  • Five-year shelf-life of IVD registered, CE certified products

The ISOSLIDE® control slide product line augments our already established portfolio of staining solutions and kits. The control slides are compatible with the PAS staining kit, Alcian blue staining solution, Reticulin silver plating Kit and the HEMATOGNOST FE® Kit  for the Prussian blue reaction. Of course, your laboratory’s own method can also be used to stain the ISOSLIDE® control slides.

More ISOSLIDE® control slide products will be introduced in the upcoming months, to increase the new portfolio accordingly.

Insert sheets, Certificates of Analysis and detailed user information can be found on the individual product information pages.
