detached coverslips

From:Louise Taylor <>

Hi there histonetters,

I've got a problem with detached tape coverslips of archival slides - the
tape has either fallen off completely, or is still partially stuck to the
slide. Problem is, that the tissue section is sticking to the coverslip - is
there some way that these sections can be rescued? I've tried soaking the
partially detached ones in acetone, but then the section just floats off
completely, and stcking the tape down with mounting media is messy. Any

Best regards
Louise Renton.
