Has anyone tried the Premiere Microscope Slides - charged - from
Cardinal yet?   If so how did you like them?  Any feedback would be
appreciated.   Thanks, amy

Hi Amy,

We have been using the Premiere slides, both charged and uncharged, for
about 6 months now.  We purchase them from Mercedes Medical.  The
difference in price between these and our old slides is amazing (just
about 1/3 the cost).

The only complaint that I have with them is that they are about 1/16th
of an inch short of 3 inches.  This becomes an issue because we cut
sections and dry them on edge in metal racks.  So one end of the slide
is held in place, but the other doesn't quite meet the metal designed to
hold it in place.  We adjusted to this by squeezing the sides of the
rack, making the sides of the rack bow in a bit.

I don't know how much longer we will be using them, however.  We have
just purchased a new slide writer and it is recommended to use clipped
corner slides with this instrument.  The Premiere slides have a small
clipped corner, but I am not sure if we will have to go to a more
expensive slide to get the best performance from the slide writer.

Hope this helps to answer your questions.
