RE: Cryostat static

Another really easy solution is to exhale on the slide before using it.
Just enough to fog it up will do the trick.

Our pathology group has a LEICA CM1850 cryostat, My question to the histonet
is......Does anyone experience static electricity when trying to pick up
sections?  When we try to pick up the sections they will fly up to the slide
or off on their own.  We would like to know how to remedy this if there is
any. Thanks for your help
