RE: glass coverslipping

From:Cathie Crukley

We are currently using a mountant from the UK that we get through LEICA.  It is called Mountex (CellPath, email: we are able to file the slides the next day.

I used a Leica coverslipper in my previous post. We used pertex as the
mountant and had to leave the slides for three days before we could do the
slide filing without them sticking together. The slide labels were printed
with the date on to enable us to do this.
