RE: [Histonet] Rubber cement (for in situ)

From:"Patsy Ruegg"

I have used just a glass coverslip laying on over the hybridizing reagent
without sealing it at all, then the glass can be floated off in buffer.  I
hope I am understanding this inquiry.

Subject: [Histonet] Rubber cement (for in situ)

I am starting to work up a protocol for in situ hybridization and discovered
I need to seal my slides because of the high temps and long incubation.  Can
anyone help me with the following questions:  
a. I noticed the rubber cement is quite fluid.  Using the brush that it
comes with the can (or another method), how does one go about applying it
after your sample is coverslipped?
b. I've heard about fumes ... what concerns should I have; safety
precautions should I take? (my normal range of temperature will be between
43 and 55 degrees Celcius within a Boekel Slide Moat or all purpose
c. Are there better methods to use when sealing slides? 
d. What is the best way to remove the rubber cement/coverslip after
performing hybridization?
