Standard shelf life for soda lime glass microscope slides is approximately 2 years if the below "Care and Storage of Microscope Slides" conditions are followed.
Transportation and storage conditions considerably affect the quality and performance of microscope slides. Follow these recommendations to ensure the integrity of your new slides.
Microscope slides should be stored in a dry place at constant room temperature. If the ambient temperature is constantly warming and cooling, condensation may occur, which can cause the slides to stick.
Slides should be kept on a pallet or shelf and not directly on the floor.
Do not store slides and solvents together as the slide surface can turn hydrophobic.
When the slides have just been received, allow them to reach room temperature before opening. This can take up to 24 hours. Keep in mind that the slides may have been in a very warm or cold vehicle and condensation can form if opened too soon after arrival.
Since soda lime glass is subject to an aging process, we further recommend continuously rotating stock so the oldest slides are always used first. This will ensure that all slides being used are of the highest quality.
