I use Starfrost plus slides from Mercedes Medical. We use them for all
of our neuropathology specimens, including muscle and nerve at 5
microns, and have no problems. I dry my slides on a hot plate for 10
minutes (after draining thoroughly) and never have a problem with either
H&E's or IHC washing off - either by manual or automated staining.
Call them for a sample. Mercedes sells different brands of adhesive
slides, be sure you ask for the Starfrost Platinum Line, they are
Have a great day!

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,
