RE: coverslipping by hand


You really should try not to become so emotionally involved.  I have coverslipped bare handed for 23 years and still have all my fingers, don't see spots before my eyes, liver and kidneys work fine and I'm still relatively sane.

It breaks my heart to read that there are techs out there NOT using gloves to coverslip!!  I have NEVER touched mountant or xylene with my bare hands and neither should anyone out there!  Buy nitrile gloves that fit you and arent too big and you should have NO problems!

Hi all,
Just one quick question.. Do any of you use gloves to cover slip by hand?
Thanks for you input
