coverslipping film

From:"Connie P." <>

I'm in need of some imput from Histology folks who use automatic
coverslipping machines. Ours is a Sakura model, using their brand of film.
After using this unit for 10 years, we have begun to observe that the film
is lifting off slides more than 5 years old. In some cases the film takes
the tissue off with it. On many slides the only thing holding the film onto
the slide is the original label we put on. It's a huge issue for us, as we
do about 123,000 slides per year.
If anyone is seeing this with their unit and old slides, please respond.
