RE: Peel & stick
|From:||"Nocito, Joseph" <email@example.com>|
The product is MountQuick from Newcomers Supply. It really works great. I
had a reference slide that had multiple sections. The doctor wanted some
immunos. I removed the coverslip in Xylene, then applied the MountQuick to
the wet slide. I let it dry, then placed into a warm waterbath, peeled the
sections off, cut the tissue sections into 6 pieces, placed the pieces on 6
seperate slides that were wet with distilled water, and let them dry. This
was great because the one slide I received was on a regular slide. When I
transferred the cut up pieces, I put the section on plus slides. I ran the
immunos over the H&E and the doctor was happy. Be careful though, you might
be opening up Padora's Box. Once the doctor's get a hold of this, there is
no stopping them. I even did this on a Pap smear.
