We have 2 slide mates and we run our slides through all reagents and do not have the issue you describe. The only issue we experienced was poor print quality due to the type of paint on the frosted end of the slides. I recently switched to Leica's charged slide that is designed for Thermal Printers like the slide mate and the print quality is top notch and does not fade, peel, or smear when touched and ran through xylene, alcohol, retrieval solutions etc....

Dear histonetters,

we have problems with the stability of the print of our slide mates

We use regular slides with frosted end. The print usually looks good and
stable at the time of printing.

But after staining the print comes off like peeled skin. Very easy to

We take care, that the print doesn't come in contact with organic solvents
(deparaffination reagens = Histo SAV, butyl acetate), but without any
logical reason the first line of the print peels off and the second and
third line is rather ok.

Has anyone seen similar problems and solved them?
