I am having trouble getting wood specimens embedded in paraplast plus to 
stick to glass slides.  The bark and phloem tissues stick fine, but the 
wood made up of the xylem does not.  I have tried charges slides and a 
gelatin adhesive in the water bath.  I am using ethanol based 
Safranin-O, Fast Green, Orange G and Iodine stains.  Does anyone have an 
adhesive suggestion?
