Slide

 

in machine building, that part of a metalcutting machine tool or other machine designed to move a tool, workpiece, or subassembly of the machine in two, usually perpendicular, directions; it usually has two guide systems. Slides are classified as longitudinal, transverse, and swing types. Medium-sized machines have solid slides, and heavy machine tools use box-shaped hollow slides. SCh 15–32 cast (pig) iron is mostly used. The fixed metal beams on which machine subassemblies, such as electric motors, are moved during operation are also called slides.

As noted above, the original microscope slides were returned to client pathologists shortly after scanning, which is our routine for patient care, so it was not possible to directly compare a microscope slide rereview with a WSI review (as we did in our original validation study of primary diagnoses).
Untreated glass surfaces do not provide strong enough retention for many biological samples, and this has led to the widespread adoption of positively charged hydrophobic microscope slides for routine IHC analysis.
