[Histonet] glass coverslippers

We have a refurbished Leica CV5030 and do like it.  However, I agree with
Beatrice, it took many hours of adjusting the drop size, and the ratio of
mounting media with sovlent, to solve the mounting media problem.  We did end up
buying a smaller needle to dispense the mounting media and since then we have
not had any problems.  

Leica does not sell this size needle.  If anyone would like the ordering
information, I would be glad to to send the info to you.

P.S.  I have no experience with any other coverslipper (our histology dept. uses
the Leica).

I am in the market for a new coverslipper.  I am looking at Thermo's clearvue or
Leica's CV 5030.  Does anyone have any input on either of these coverslippers,
good or bad.
Thank you in advance,
