[Histonet] IHC ~ Tissue Falling Off Slides, drying procedure.slides

From:"Jones, Laura"

Hey Jeff!  We have tried many variations on drying as well.  Generally, we
cut the tissue, let it stand and drain/air dry at room temp for 0.5-1.0
hour, then place on the slide dryer at 65-70 for another hour, then place in
the slide oven at 80 to melt - usually about 20 minutes.  

We have also tried microwave drying. 

We have also dipped the slides (after the tissue is on them) into

Even slides that are cut on Saturday, dry all weekend and not retrieved
until Monday morning are troublesome.  

Dottie - we happen to have a few boxes of Superfrost Plus slides here from
our Cytology department and are cutting some test slides as I type this.
Thanks for the suggestion!
