The phase contrast test slide was developed by the Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL), on behalf of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and the National Physical Laboratory (NPL). It is made in the UK under licence from the National Physical Laboratory (NPL). Each of the HSE standard test slides is an epoxy replica of the NPL master, certified by HSL. The replica is mounted on a microscope slide and covered with a glass slip 0.17mm thick.
The test slide includes a calibration certificate by the British Health and Safety Laboratory, certifying that when viewed "by phase contrast optical microscopy, band 5 is fully visible and band 6 partially visible at 500x magnification."
Full details are supplied with the slide.

Note: Different test slides are in common use, or mandated by certifying authorities.
NIOSH (USA) red slide 4 bands.
HSE (UK and Australia) green slide 5 bands.
General non-asbestos microscope calibration yellow slide 6 bands.
USA may use band 5 and 4 if the calibrating person understands the process, similarly band 6 could also be used.

Walton and Beckett eyepiece reticles and PS12 calibration scales with UKAS certificates are frequently required by users of this slide.
