The tape coverslipper from Sakura does work very well, but I would advise you
to get buy in from your pathologists and anyone else that is going to be
reading slides with the tape coverslips. Some people insist on glass

Tape coverslip advantages:
1) Speed (I have used one machine to coverslip 3-4,000 slides per day)
2) Quick drying (Important if you are a core lab and courier slides out
3) Fast removal of coverslips (Several techniques are used, check the
Histonet archives.)

Glass Coverslip advantages
1) Saves tech time and reduces exposure to xylene.
2) Stays with traditional glass coverslip.
