RE: Glass Coverslipping Units

From:"Gladney, Diane C"

We will be getting the Microm coverslipping unit very soon. I had the
company send a demo unit for evaluation. I like the coverslipper for several
reasons. The unit is smaller than most of the others on the market therefore
it takes up less bench space. The unit will allow you to use more than one
size of coverslips, is easy to use and maintain. The only drawback that I
experienced is that the unit is a little noisy because of the compact size.
It operated without any problems during the time that we had the demo unit.
I am looking forward to getting the unit in soon and using it. I will keep
you posted on any problems or "sing its praises". 
Have a Great Day,

Hi All!
I have been cruising thru the Histonet Archives. Looking for comments on
glass coverslipping units.  Did you know there are over 323 comments
containing the word "coverslipping?" Of course I searched for "coverslipping
units," "coverslippers,""Microm," and "glass coverslipping." After reading
about 40 or 50, I started going a little cross-eyed and decided to that the
easy way out and ask the Histonetters.
I saw many comments on the Hacker and the Leica. But I could not locate any
comments about the Microm automatic glass coverslipping unit.  Anyone out
there have one? What do you think about it?

Histologically yours,
