I use StayOn from Leica(Surgipath) which works really well on non-coated slides.  I cut autopsy material, unusually large sections of bloody, dried, etc tissue and they stay on with StayOn.  Gee I made a rhyme.

Hi all! We are having issues with the tissue falling off of our slides during routine
staining. The tissue primarily lifts from the bottom sections on the slides. We have
had our stainer checked and have checked ourselves, the oven appears to be
working properly and the water pressure is fine. I tried two different slide manufacturers, both silane coated, and are getting the same result. Not sure where to go at this point except to try a"non-coated" slide. Any suggestions on a manufacturer or vendor??
Thanks in advance. Your help is always appreciated!
