The microscopy slide format (75.5 mm x 25.5 mm x 1.5 mm) is now an accepted standard in the lab-ona-
chip field and has several advantages: A handy format that makes manual manipulation easy, not too
big and not too small, it fits perfectly onto any microscope, and handling frames can be used in order to
place the microscopy slide inside and to work with existing laboratory equipment systems, for example
for filling or read-out.
