We had the same problem a few years ago and it was water in our xylene
stations on the stainer. We change our xylene out more frequently now and
the problem has not come up since.

Subject: [Histonet] Sakura Tape coverslipper

Has anyone been experiencing a brown cornflaking artifact on their slides
after being coverslipped.
I was told by Sakura that it was do to the slides drying out when
transferred from the stainer to the coverslipper.
Which can't be correct because on the new sakura coverslipper there is a
holding area which is filled with xylene so if the tissue dried out it would
rehydrate before being coverslipped.
