RE: [Histonet] Silicone slides

From:"Monfils, Paul"

He is probably referring to what we now call "Plus slides", which are coated
with "Silane", a trade name for positively charged silicon tetrahydride.
When these slides first came on the market some years ago, the name "Silane"
was not yet in vogue, and the maufacturer described the coating on the
slides simply as "electrostatically charged silicon".
