RE: Sta-on issue with automated coverslipper

From:Fred Underwood

I have had the same problem. I've gone to distilled water only in my flotation bath.  Except for special stains or bone samples when I use either charged slides or a drop of adhesive on the slide.

	Dear Luong, 

	        ANY material on the back side of the microscope slide (adhesive, 
stain, bits of tissue section, etc.) will act as a point of friction. 
This interferes with gravity's pull on the slide.  Depending on the 
amount of material/friction, the slide movement down the chute could 
actually be stopped.   
        Recommended technique is to wipe the back of the slide after 
picking up the section or ribbon from the water bath (regardless of the 
type of coverslipping utilized.) 
Besides using this helpful resource, please feel free to call Sakura's 
Technical Support for more discussion as well.    800 725 8723, Menu

	HI all 

	Can anyone tell me.  Will the Sta on (adhesive) on the slide give any 
to the Sakura automated coverslipper (Film)? 
Such as stick to the rail and not fall into the chute appropriately.
