- Microscope slides are often used together with a cover glass, a smaller and thinner sheet of glass that is placed over the specimen.
The main function of the cover slip is to keep solid specimens pressed flat, and liquid samples shaped into a flat layer of even thickness.
It holds the specimen in place (either by the weight of the cover slip or, in the case of a wet mount, by surface tension ) and protects the specimen from dust and accidental contact.
It protects the microscope's objective lens from contacting the specimen.
