I buy Vector Labs' VECTABOND and coat the slides myself.  I dry the sections onto the slides for 2 days.  I have yet to lose a section.

Hello Histonetters,
We are having trouble getting our paraffin processed cow meniscus sections (at 5 microns) to stay on our Superfrost Plus slides.  We are drying them overnight in a 58 C oven.  The H&Es look great but the immunos wash every time.
What is your favorite slide for these hard to stay on samples?
Thanks for your time,
