glueing MMA sections

From:Cathy Mayton <>

Dear Geoff,

You did not mention if these are microtome or ground sections.  For ground
sections we use cyanoacrylate glue (super glue) which also can be bought at
Wal-Mart or Home Depot.  We glue our sections to plastic slides, grind and
polish to an optical finish and then stain the sections.  In the past when
sectioning microtome sections we found a protocol for albumin using fresh
egg to adhere sections to slides.  If you need further information on
either of these methods please feel free to contact me directly.

Hope this helps,
