[Histonet] Self-Charging Microscope Slides

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone was familiar with the protocol used by 
manufacturers such as Menzel-Glaser regarding placing a permanent 
positive charge on their glass slides. In the case of M-G they are 
called Superfrost PLUS or ULTRA PLUS slides. The reason I am asking is 
because I wish to positively charge /quartz/ slides, rather than glass 
ones. Quartz is needed for my spectroscopy experiments. I am aware that 
it is relatively easy to self-coat slides if you wish to use 
poly-l-lysine or silane but both will show up as background interference 
in my case. I am actually unaware if and how well quartz can actually 
hold a charge. Any help appreciated!
