Hi all,

I'm looking for some help in choosing a new vendor for coverslips for  
the Thermo Consul coverslipper.  We have been buying coverslips from  
Thermo since we bought the instrument, and the last shipment (of 10  
cases) is from a new supplier and is not working in the instrument.   
The coverslip cannot be detected and the mountant is not dispensing.   
I spoke with the technician (Diane is wonderful) and she walked me  
through a diagnostic on the Consul and the instrument is not the  
problem.  Does anyone out there have a suggestion as to a coverslip  
that they know works in the Consul?  I have already tried the Vista  
from VWR (which is okay, but not perfect) and am eagerly awaiting  
requested samples.  Thanks for your help.
