RE: wavy slides

From:"Smith, Allen"

I have found that paraffin sections of skin stick well to albuminized slide if they are left on the warming tray for 48 to 72 hours before staining.  For all sections of skin, it helps to leave it on the warming tray for several hours after mounting with a 50 g weight on the coverslip.
