Attaching the sample clips
To securely hold a microscope slide on the stage, you can attach the sample clips.
3D printed parts
- 2 sample clip Both sample clips are in the one file.
Step 1: Insert the screws into the clips
Step 2: Screw the sample clips onto the stage
There are 9 holes on the top of the stage, allowing you flexibility when choosing where to place the sample clips. Screw the sample clip to the stage using a 2.5mm Allen key, going through the hole at the top.
If it is difficult to start screwing, then you may find it useful to tap the hole with the screw first.
Attach the second clip in the same way.
Step 3: Clamp the slide
Now you can gently lift up the glass clips and place your microscope slide.
