I've used cyanoacrylate "super glue" with great success.  It works on wet
tissue with no problems. Be careful of your fingers.

How does one mount unfixed tissues for vibratome sectioning?  Are they
encased in any medium such as agarose or gelatin, or simply glued onto the
stage and sectioned?  I can't seem to find information on this anywhere.

Thanks, and have a great weekend all!
