RE: [Histonet] SAKURA TISSUE -TEK SCA Coverslipper

From:"Deltour, Douglas D.(HM2)"

I have worked with several of them. They are very easy machines to operate
and the results are great. Very low maintenance. The machine also uses an
air pump that pumps the medium to the slide. This pump will cost you much
money if you get it through Sakura. It can be replaced with an air pump that
is found at a pet store in the fish department for much less. We always keep
one on hand just in case. The coverslipping tape is a little expensive when
you use the Sakura brand. I know that has the
same type of coverslip tape for a better price. Here is the catalog number
15-182-52 Vendor No.:14-K-KP. Also Sakura offers the bottles of cover
slipping medium but I have always used xylene with the same results. Let me
know if you have any more questions.
