NEW INSTRUMENTS. COVER-GLASS FORCEPS. BY O. E. LINJER, M.D. STARBUCK, MINN. To those who are familiar with microscopic technique the following illustrations of a cover-glass forceps devised by me are self-explanatory. Clinical microscopy demands the simplest as well as most rapid methods consistent with accuracy. None of the many cover-glass forceps now in use are adapted to modern microscopic work. For staining sputum, pus, blood, etc., the complete process, from fixing to placing of cover-glass on slide, may be carried out while cover-glass is held in forceps. The following advantages are claimed for these forceps: 1. The cover-glass while on its flat side can be rapidly picked up from any surface whether glass, marble, wood or paper. 2. The cover-glass is held level, firmly and anatomically. 3. No possibility of cover-glass slipping out of or breaking while held in forceps. 4. Hands of operators are kept free from stains and acids. 5. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association
