I had this same problem a while back with an outside slide that had
been sent to us for consultation. I even called the company to get any
input from them. No luck. My final solution was to trim the tape down
to just the area where the section was located. I sandwiched the tape
between the glass slide and a glass coverslip using mounting media
only. I used a paper clamp to secure it until it dried. Do not use any
xylene. This will cause the tissue to start floating off the tape and
scatter around. It can be pretty messy so don't use too much mountant.
Good luck and let us know if you get any better solutions.
