Automated coverslips/covertapes are perfectly fine for use on the HT/HTL
practical slides.  GLASS is NOT, I repeat NOT, required.  Further, NO slides
have "EVER" been rejected outright "just" because they had tape-type
coverslips on them.  They could have been rejected for any number of other
reasons.  If the instructions do state "coverGLASSES" must be used, this is
simply a semantic/generic term for coverslipping.

using an automated coverslipper is ok as long as it uses GLASS coverslips.
the instructions specifically state that coverglasses must be used....the
tape-type are not acceptable.  i know a couple of students who had their
slides rejected outright because of just this misunderstanding.
good luck,
