Re: [Histonet] Does anyone have any suggestions for getting brain tissue (human) to stay on the slides?
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.
