Re: 40 um paraffin sections coming loose from the slides
It is a good idea with very thick sections of brain to let them air dry for
24 hr. Then place the slides in an over to melt paraffin. Keep using the
slides you are using. I found them to be the best.

Subject: 40 um paraffin sections coming loose from the slides
I'm cutting 40 um paraffin sections, human brain, so the sections is very
big. The problem is, that some sections (to much) is coming loose from the
slides when I rehydrate. I coated the slides with 4,5% gelatine and 4,0%
potassium chromic sulphate. I have tried silane slides but the
gelatine/ChromeAlun seems to be the best for now.
If anyone has a suggestion to overcome the problem with loose section, I
would like to here from you.
