Hi all,


I have been in contact with a third party from Australia that
distributes Starfrost slides made by Waldemar Knittel Glasbearbeitungs
GmbH (Knittel Glaser) as my tissue sections have been falling off during
immunohistochemistry using a new batch of slides (Starfrost Adhesive
hydrophilic slides) with the same catalogue number as previously
ordered.  I received an explanation that all previous batches of slides
sent may have been mis-labelled and probably had an adhesive applied
like silane coated or poly-L-lysine.  The only difference between the
old batch of slides and new batch is that the old ones have 2 stars
printed at the top of the slides and the boxes are labelled as
"adhesive-Objekttrager" rather than "Objekttrager".  I am wondering
whether anybody else may be have been having problems with these slides
and whether changing to silane coated may help?


Thanks in advance for your help,
