The 94 x 81 x 49mm high staining dish has a light-tight cover with a compartment for a drying agent, and a perforated slide partition to support the drying agent. The partition has index numbers and a surface for writing. A removable clip is placed on the top edge of the dish, permitting stain solution to drain back into the reservoir from the tilted rack. The small size dish saves on staining liquids, developing fluids and intermediates, as only 150mL is needed. Actual capacity is 250mL. The light-tight lid is essential for easily evaporated baths.The dish is easy to clean and especially suited to storing enzymes. The cover will not jam in freezer storage.
