[Histonet] tissue coming off slides

From:John Baker

Hi All,  A group I work with just came to ask if there was a way of 
keeping frozen tissue sections from coming off a slide?  It seems there 
technician used uncoated/regular slides to mount 100's of sections.  
The tissues were embedded in OCT and cut at 5 microns but of course are 
sliding off during any staining procedure.  Is there a protocol of any 
sort to coat the slides after the fact to retain the sections through 
staining?  I at least suggested they stain flat.  Any suggestions are 
appreciated.  John
