A current project is cutting slides to check for fluorescein expression.
The first time I did this, I was asked to air-dry the slides and mount
with aqueous medium; as you can expect, the coverage was "iffy" at best
with lifting of the coverslip, etc. Is there any reason I could not dry
these in a 60 degree oven as usual, then deparaffinize and coverslip out
of xylene? Would this process compromise the results? Help? Thanks!
