Re: Automated Coverslipper

From:Ross Stapf

We use the Sakura Tape Coverslipper.  It is much faster.  Once you get it going it is very easy to maintain.


Get some slides which have been coverslipped with the tape Coverslipper and have all of your Pathologists read them.  Some Pathologists absolutely hate the appearance of the tape coverslip.

Also many people have had problems with old slides coverslipped with the tape.  The coverslip lifts off and the section comes with it.  To combat this problem if you choose the Sakura, ensure that there is adequate clearing of the slide in Xylene and that enough Xylene is getting on every slide in the cover slipping process.  Also if you can store your slides in a controlled environment with constant temperature and humidity, this will help prevent this as well.
