Re: [Histonet] SAKURA TISSUE -TEK SCA Coverslipper

From:"Fred Underwood"

I have used one for years and really like it.  I know that others have
stated on histonet that they have had problems with the tape coming
loose.  It is important to dispense an adequate volume of xylene on to
the slide.  I would say atleast 10 drops of xylene.  Daily clean the
receiving chute with a little xylene, to remove any resinous residue
that could accumulate and impede the slides from entering the receiving
basket.  It is recommended to file the slides against each other to help
keep the coverlip film pressed on.  I have had slides sit out for over a
year without the film coming loose.  I would go with the SCA, it is
quick and does a clean job.
