The first and probably most obvious would be that if you are using an
adhesive in your waterbath you should not use it with plus slides.
The second would be to let your sections dry at room temp for a while
before putting gin the oven.
Hope this gives you a place to start.

Hi Histonetters, We are receiving more surgical brain sections than we
have in the past. We process the specimens on the Pathos Automatic
Microwave Histoprocessor and we cut the sections at 5 microns. The
sections sometimes do not stay on the slides even though we use Plus
slides. The Neuropathologist is not happy and she has asked me to find
out if there is some way to get better sections. Thank you in advance
for your help.
