RE: [Histonet] Glass vs. Tape Coverslippers

From:"Morken, Tim - Labvision"

Bill, Plastic is fine for polarazatin (at least the limited use of
polarization in a routine pathology lab) and oil immersion is no problem.
Can't be used for fluorescence, however, because the tape is adhered with
xylene. The tape coverslipping machine is primarily for speed - 20 slides
per minute - so it is intended for routine pathology and cranking out slides
very quickly.

What an understatement! ;-) I have never seen a taped slide. My 1st 
thoughts were are they usable for polarization studies, fluorescence, 
oil lenses etc.

Thanks of answering.
