RE: Frozen sections

From:Walzer Susan

You can try albuminized slides, heat works sometimes. The plus slides are
for formalin fixed tissue only as I understand. I have found that like
paraffin slides, a well cut section stays on better. Try a new blade, it
might help some.

Subject: Frozen sections

Hello all,

I have just started working with frozen sections ( I had previously just
worked with paraffin sections) and I am having a problem with
sections floating off the slide when I wash them to remove the OCT.  Will
warming the slides help the sections to adhere to the slides?
I am using superfrost plus slides so I wasn't expecting this problem.  Does
anyone out there have any suggestions or ideas?

Thank you in advance for your help, you always come through for me.
