RE: [Histonet] Auto stainer and coverslipper

From:"Laurie Colbert"

We have the Sakura Tissue Tek SCA coverslipper that utilizes the film to coverslip.  I love it for our slides - it is very fast, easy to use, and relatively maintenance-free.  However, I see that you are in Orthopaedic Surgery and I would not recommend the film coverslipper for bone specimens.  If your tissue doesn't adhere to the slide well, you can get a funky cornflaking artifact.

any slides with air bubbles in them (as we sometimes get with manual
