I cut MMA sections which are also hard to mount and have them stay on the
slides.  I have found that Biocare, Surgipath, Newcomer's Supply and
Scientific Device Laboratory have what they call HIER slides or superplus
slides.  All of them are great, the prices are a little steep.

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
What is your favorite slide for these hard to stay on samples?
Thanks for your time,
