Hi Ana,

The OCT on the coated slides will not disappear like it does on regular glass slides. It appears to polymerize along with the coating, but it doesn't seem to interfere on the tissue section with the staining.

According to Gayle Callis' recommendation, it's best to try using the least amount of coating rather than more. More doesn't always mean better adhesion, and as Nancy Thomas reported usually ends up causing more imaging interference and stain uptake making for a messier slide.
