RE: [Histonet] brain tissue sections

From:"Charles Scouten"

I used silane to coat glass pipettes so proteins would not stick.  You
seem to be using it as the glue for proteins.  I would look into what
silane does and is for if I were you. It is a silicone compound that can
coat glass with a silicone layer.  Nothing sticks well to silicone.

Subject: [Histonet] brain tissue sections

We are having a terrible time with our ffpe 4 micron rat brain tissue
sections falling off the slides, we are using silane coated slides, air
drying on edge on a small fan, then heating on a slide warmer flat at
55dc for 1 hour to overnight.  Please help.  The sections are falling
off during deparaffinizing thru xylene and alcohols, haven't even gotten
to HIER and IHC yet.
thanks for your help,
