[Histonet] Mountant for GMA stained sections

I agree with Gayle.  We put a weight on the coverslip until it dries to help
keep it flat.  Since all mounting media has some organic solvent like xylene
or toluene it is hard to avoid them completely.  We use DPX for everything

Let stained GMA sections  air dry and mount with a permanent mounting media.
Dipping in xylene tends to crack or cause the GMA to wrinkle since the
plastic can't be removed.
