A container package for simultaneously staining a plurality of specimens arranged on the respective faces of a plurality of microscope slides comprises a slide holder for vertically supporting the slides at their upper ends in closely-spaced parallel relation and a generally rectangular body member having a generally rectangular upwardly-opening cavity for receiving the downwardly extending portions of the slides. The cavity has a height less than the length of the slides and the walls of the cavity conform closely to the perimeters of the slides. Guide walls are arranged in the corners of the cavity for maintaining a spaced relationship between the opposed end faces of the inserted slides and the cavity walls. A quantity of staining liquid partially fills the cavity, the depth of the liquid prior to insertion of the slides in the cavity being less than the distance between the specimens and the inserted ends of the respective slides.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
