Is it possible for you to provide more information as to the type of specimen you are working with and how thick you are cutting the sections?

So far I have tried gelatin, APES and Histostik. I am using a press and placing them in a 50° C oven for approx. 48 hours. The sections look as if they are attached, until I begin staining. I am pretty sure that the PEG is causing my problem, but have seen an article or two that have attached GMA sections to slides. Does anyone have a protocol that works well with GMA? If so, I would greatly appreciate any help I can get. Thank you much.> > Jim> > > > _______________________________________________> Histonet mailing list> Histonet <@t> lists.utsouthwestern.edu> http://lists.utsouthwestern.edu/mailman/listinfo/histonet
