I don't have an actual SOP but we just soak in a jar of xylene until the coverslip come off.

Importance: High

Hi colleagues,

I need to remove a glass coverslip from a mounted H&E biopsy slide with an implant in order to run some biomaterial surface characterization studies.  Does anyone have a SOP that they would be willing to share for removing glass coverslips without damaging the specimen?  Thanks in advance for all of the great advice that I always get from the histonet.

Best regards,
