Elmer's Glue Coated Slides!


<br> <br> <br><font size=2 face="sans-serif">        Histonetters,</font> <br> <br><font size=2 face="sans-serif">                I have a quick question concerning slides coated with Elmer's Glue. I have never used this technique before so I searched the Histonet Archives and found reference for preparing the slides.  My question is: will the Glue interfer with H&E and T-Blue staining? I know that it wasn't recommended for IHC.  I am currently working on a project with rat ankle joints in which the area of interest includes 3 different tissue types.  One small piece of cartilage does not stick well to the slide (positively charged) after drying and subsequently pops off/folds over during staining.  It was suggested that I try drying the slides laying flat on a hotplate overnight and also that I use Elmer's Glue coated slides.  Does anyone else have any further suggestions. Thank you very much for your insight!</font> <br> <br><font size=2 face="sans-serif">Jennifer Hoover</font> <br><font size=2 face="sans-serif">Eli Lilly and Company</font>
