[Histonet] Sections coming off of slides

Hi all,

I just had a professor come to me asking if I had any tricks to rescue a 
section that is partially off its slide.  This is formalin-fixed, 
paraffin embedded mouse brain, and one section on one slide is half 
attached and half floating after antigen retrieval for IHC (no, I don't 
know which retrieval method he used, but I can find out if you need 
it).  I've never tried to do this, and a search of the archives turned 
up nothing, but my keywords may be off.    Has anybody managed to save a 
section that was coming off the slide?
