I cut mouse brain all the time on plus slides from statlabs with no problem
with tissue falling off.

I've just finished doing the Gallyas stain for tangles and have found that
no matter how gentle I am with the slides tissue falls off the slide during
the stain.  I thought about using + slides but heard that brain tissue and
plus slides don't work due to +/- charges working against each other.  Any
suggestions?  Also, what could I use as a control for tangles?  I'm working
with mouse tissue. 

Thanks for your help.
