RE: [Histonet] Glass vs. Tape Coverslippers

From:"Laurie Colbert"

We have a tape coverslipper, and we love it.  It is fast and we have had very few problems with it.  Our pathologists have no problem reading the slides, and as far as I know, there's never been a problem photographing a slide.  We did demo the glass coverslippers when we were first looking for a new coverslipper, and there were too many problems with slides sticking together, air bubbles, and it was just all-around not as "user friendly."

Subject: [Histonet] Glass vs. Tape Coverslippers

Hello again,
I'm looking for opinions on the subject of glass coverslippers versus tape  
coverslipping.  I have the opportunity to decide on a system.  My only  
experience has been with tape coverslipping.  I understand machines  that glass 
coverslip are slower than tape systems. Is the refractive index  better with glass 
coverslips under the microscope?  Opinions pros/cons are  appreciated.
