RE: Removing Coverslips!

From:"Horn, Hazel V" <>

If you are not in a hurry just put the slide in warm xylene, like in a 37
degree oven.    Or a quicker method is to freeze the slide and take a
dissecting needle and pop the coverslip off, then soak the slide in xylene
to remove the permount on the slide.
Hope this helps.
