Are using any adhesive on the slide or a charged slide?  We used to dip slides in a water/elmer glue solution and allow to dry.  Then place a section on it and it seemed to work...

After cutting, try putting the slide into a coplin jar of formalin.  Introduce to heat for about 30 minutes or so, remove and let air dry before staining.

Hello to all in histoland.  We have a stubborn toenail that keeps coming off when we try to do a GMS stain on the ventana machine.  Any suggestions on how to keep the section on the slide during the staining procedure.
