[Histonet] Charged slides

Hi, A question has come up regarding the different methods used to put a charge on the slide. We recently ordered some plus slides and the boxes they are packed in say silanized slides, but they say  "plus" on the slide . We don't want to use these for our clients if they are not going to be getting the same results as the former "plus" slides that we were using. I was under the delusion that Plus slides somehow are magically charged without any coating process taking place.

So does anyone know exactly how a "plus" slide gets its charge? Do they all get dipped in APES, or Polylysine?

Thanks for your help.
