RE: [Histonet] Glass vs. Tape Coverslippers

From:"Morken, Tim - Labvision"

Deb my experience with both types is that tape is fine for daily work for
the vast majority of slides - those that will be looked at once and filed
away forever. Tape does have some waviness that affects critical microscopy
- high power and photography to some extent. I've gotten excellent pictures
with tape-coverslipped slides, but glass-coverslipped slides are much more
consistent for photography. The newer glass coverslippers are more reliable
and faster than the old ones so speed is not such an issue.

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
coverslip are slower than tape systems. Is the refractive index  better with
coverslips under the microscope?  Opinions pros/cons are  appreciated.
