Re: [Histonet] Slide trays

From:Gayle Callis

Fisher, VWR, and many histology suppliers have these, and they tend to be
expensive.  Try Wards, they seem to have these at a reasonable pricing,
sometimes better than Fisher et al.  If your hospital/laboratory has
discount on these all the better or if you buy in volume, do some dealing. 

We have laid white sheets of paper, cut to fit the long slots, or even
thicker biological paper over the stains, and replace when messed up - use
double stick Scotch tape for easy removal.
