Dear histonetters,
Need your help on this. I have a small research lab, looking for an
economical way to organize slides and tissue cassettes.  We are talking
about up to a few thousand cassettes and ten thousand of slides. We are
getting to the point not happy with storing cassettes in cardboard boxes
and slides in slide boxes (holding 100 slides/EA)  

Any suggestions?  Thank you very much for your help.

Thanks everyone for your response!
I got a lot of advice on long term slide storage sent to me privately,
so just to share, I would say the general consensus was ultra low temps
wrapped in foil along with a desiccant.

Thanks again to the wonderful Mr. Tim Morken for sharing this article on
the TMA storage and the paraffin "dip".    The technique was what the
Pathologist was looking for and what we will be using in our project.

The Histonet is such a valuable tool, and I appreciate the support and
help I have gotten from peers as well as vendors.

Have the best weekend possible!  I'll be spending my Saturday shoveling
