  • Tech Notes: Coverslip Treatment Test 

Coverslip Treatment Test  

A simple method to determine which side of the coverslip is treated is the “droplet” test. A drop of water or culture medium will spread on the hydrophilic, treated side.

  • If the droplet forms a bead, then the side of the coverslip is not treated.
  • If the droplet spreads evenly over the coverslip, the side is treated.
