[Histonet] coverslipping film


I am new to the list so this is  a little late.  But we have devised a good way to handle the old archieved slides that have the slide separated from the coverslip.  Most of the time the coverslip will curl and keeping it on the slide isl tough at best.  Cut as much of the coverslip away from the tissue leaving just a small frame of coverslipping film around the section.  Depending on the size of your cut place some mounting media on a slide as well as a little xylenel and that mount the seciton you have just cut.  

Good luck.
