RE: Faramount

From:"Horn, Hazel V" <>

I'm not sure why you are having this trouble.   We use the Faramount and
have non of these problems.   You should not be putting this in the oven.
It dries hard at room temp in a fairly short amount of time.   Maybe you
have too much water on the slide when you are coverslipping??
