[Histonet] keeping fingernail and toenail on the slide

From:"Georgine Whitman"

we are having a problem keeping the nail tissue on our slides. we have used plus slides, plus slides with albumin on it, albumin on it and in the oven for about 5 minutes. most of the time the tissue stays on the h&e slide. but with the pas notttttttttttttttt.  We use koh to soften the nail prior to processing and before we cut the block. We also have soaked it in decal before cutting the block.
                                                     Thanks Georgine
