Subject: [Histonet] Sections falling off

Dear Histonetters,

I am in trouble with my paraffin sections -samples fixed in Bouin's liquid.

	I think your sections are not completely dry, after placing them on slides.  Silanized slides can trap water between the sections and the slide, almost appearing like a bulge.  You may need to use the corner of a paper towel to "poke" the paraffin section and drain off the excess water.  Make sure the sections look dry before starting the staining procedure.  They should be transparent (translucent), not opaque (milky white).
	That's my guess

Just after the first steps: Two xylol baths and 100% ethanol most of 
them are falling off. Slides are silanised.

I do not think it was an adhesion problem. What do you think about? 
Embedding, cuttibg?

Thanks a lot in advance
