Where to find Diatom Test Slide

#1 Post by Timemaster1212 » Sat Jun 27, 2020 7:15 pm

Hello all,

As i continue to experiment with my trinocular setup for imaging, it was brought to my attention that a test slide could help me fine tune my set up. However no mater where i looked, either i could not order one ( Klaus Kemp) or I had an extremely long wait time and risk of my slide being damaged. Is there a source that any members have purchased from that reduces these two factors?

Diatomshop.com: I have the generic test slide 2.0, Good quality (diatoms are mounted to the high quality coverglass - not to the slide), but a bit pricy.

Diatoms.nl has a series of diatom slides plus 2 test slides with the diatoms mounted to the low thickness tolerance coverglass as well. Fair pricing.
