Subject: [Histonet] Re water problem

We had this problem when we started using APTS coated slides and left out adhesive from the water bath. A simple solution I have found is to add a single drop of triton x100 (or similar detergent) to my full water bath and mix before heating the water. This reduces the surface tension of the water and allows it to run off the slide.
