RE: [Histonet] Does anyone have any suggestions for gettingbrain tissue (human) to stay on the slides?

From:"Weems, Joyce"

I've found that putting them on plus slides, air drying overnight, then drying in an oven the usual - 20-30 minutes works. I have only had experience with human.

Dear Barb and Histonetters,
Brain tissue does have a tendency to wash off the slide. This does seem to 
vary with the species  -  human and sheep have given me the most angst.
We sub the slides with glycerine-albumin for all our brain sections.
Then we dry the sections in an oven at 37C for many hours, preferably 
(our usual practice for other sections, including brain from other species, 
is to dry at 60C for 30 minutes)

Hope this helps.  Regards,     Laurie.
