Use silane-treated slides: buy them of make your own with "Vectabond" or something similar.  I have only once in 6 years lost a section off a silane-treated slide.

Subject: [Histonet] Tissue Falling off

Good Morning,
I have a question about tissue falling off in the higher ph decloaking.     I just tried using 10%NBF for 20 minutes after deparaffinizing and before decloaking.  I still had the tissue fall off.  It is well fixed breast tissue.  Could I use albumin on the slide or will that interfere with the staining?    Any suggestions welcomed or if you have another way of doing the formalin trick.    I use a pressure cooker and it gets up to 126.5c for 5 minutes and then goes down to 89.5c for ten seconds.
