Re: [Histonet] cracking jars

From:Amy Porter

Depending on the size of the steamer you are using, we have purchased Plastic (not sure exactly what their make up is) jars that hold 10 slides and we use tissue tek staining racks and clear dishes for large volume of slides. Supplier is Evergreen Scientific.

In answer to Rita's question: I sure have had problems with cracking coplin jars. I'm trying to make a switch from microwave to steamer, but am being foiled by shattering jars. I've been using the same basic approach as Rita.

Would love some imput,
