Subject: [Histonet] Rubber cement (for in situ)

I am starting to work up a protocol for in situ hybridization and
discovered I need to seal my slides because of the high temps and long
incubation.  Can anyone help me with the following questions:  
a. I noticed the rubber cement is quite fluid.  Using the brush that it
comes with the can (or another method), how does one go about applying
it after your sample is coverslipped?
b. I've heard about fumes ... what concerns should I have; safety
precautions should I take? (my normal range of temperature will be
between 43 and 55 degrees Celcius within a Boekel Slide Moat or all
purpose incubator)
c. Are there better methods to use when sealing slides? 
d. What is the best way to remove the rubber cement/coverslip after
performing hybridization?
