Special Requests


We offer the ability for our customers to make special requests to our histopathology and immunopathology control slide products.  The most commonly fulfilled special requests are changes to the tissue placement, drying method, section thickness and/or slide glass.  Special requests must be communicated each time an order is placed.  For these orders an SR will be added to the end of the part number to signify the change.  Because they are made after the order is placed, special request orders may take up to 2-3 weeks to manufacture.  Many special request orders are fulfilled for no additional charge.  However, when an additional charge is necessary it will be added as a separate line item fee on the sales order.  This will be confirmed at the time of placing the order. 

Below are some of the most common special requests.  If you do not find the option you are interested in please inquire with Technical Support.

The standard tissue placement is mid-range of the slide.  Possible requests…



Drying Method

The standard drying method orients the slides horizontally and includes oven exposure at 65˚C for 90 minutes.  Possible requests…
