Any concerns with the tape coverslipper?  Occassionally we have had slides not coverslipped or skipped.  Once it leaves our area, it looks fine, but later on some of the slides have dry spots but the coverslip looks intact.
We also have the coverslipper at #4 for the flow of xylene.

We have the Sakura Tissue-Tek Prisma with attached tape coverslipper and I
love it. I had so many problems with the Leica (which can be attached to
it's coverslipper but mine wasn't) I would never go back. Feel free to
email me offline with any specific questions.
