 Don't you just love it when they order those??? I have to leave them in the
oven for hours before it will stay on the slide. Good luck

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
