I would remove the tape with acetone and clear in xylene, then recoverslip 
with conventional coverslips.  I've seen problems with refractivity with 
the tape, anyway.

Happy Turkey Day.

[Histonet] Sakura tape problem

Hi - I have just been given a box (100 slides) cover slipped with Sakura 
tape.  All the tapes have been loosened from the slides with the tissue 
attacked to it.  The tape has also curled (arched).  What is the best 
for reattaching the tapes to the slides so they can be viewed again.  Or 
it?  The pathologists are really upset over these slides as they are for 
continuing education and cannot be replaced.
