Plastic Film Coverslip Repair

From:"Connelly.J. Keith" <>

Fellow Histonetters,
Our Facility has a large number of H & E tissue slides that have
plastic "film" coverslips.  In a number of instances the tissues are
actually adhearing to the coverslip and are coming completely off the
slide.  One Histology Correspondent suggested it might not be
appropriate to use Xylene to repair these because it might liquify the
plastic film coverslip.  She also wasn't sure if Permount mounting
media would liquify the plastic film coverslip.  Any insight that
could be provided into successful resolution of this dilemma would be
greatly appreciated.
