RE: Peel & stick

From:"Nocito, Joseph" <>

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.
