[Histonet] Use of Sta-On for Immuno stains


I was just wondering how other labs are handling this situation:  For 
prostate and breast core biopsies we cut extra slides for potential immuno staining, 
between the levels.  The problem is the use of adhesive in the water bath.  
Since we are cutting H&E's, there is the possibility of fall off during staining 
if we DON'T use sta-on.  But using it increases the possibility of fall off 
during immunos staining.  And if we don't use the sta-on, we run the risk of 
fall off on ALL the cases the techs are cutting that day.  

I know there are lots of labs out there performing immunos, so I'd like to 
know how you've resolved this.
