	I am having great difficulty in getting my PMMA sections to remain
on my glass slide during staining with a modifed H&E protocol for plastic
sections. I am using a 5 minute epoxy and my sections are all less than 90
um. The sections are taking up the stain, but the epoxy is giving out
before I can even get them into Eosin.

	Please send any suggestions or protocols that may be out there.

	These samples are vascular stents that contain metal. 

	Thank you,
