[Histonet] Leica Prisma problem

I suggest an extended prime to ensure no air in the line then consider if more drops of xylene are needed on the slides.

Hope this helps.

Hi Toni,

Yes, I'm sorry..it is a Sakura product. I have called tech support and they want to visit but hoping I can fix it myself quicker if it's a simple fix.

Isn't the Prisma a Sakura product? Have you called the vendor to ask for technical support over the phone? They are usually good about doing this, even if you don't have a service contract. You should also mention the lot number of the tape that you're using so they can document and track the problem if it has happened to other users.

Hello everyone,

We have the Leica Prisma film coverslipper and suddenly, there are bubbles underneath the film. I changed out the Xylene and inserted a new film roll but the problem persists.  Is there anything that you recommend to solve the problem?

Thank you in advance,
