PROBLEM NUMBER 34
Plastic coverslip tape lifting from a glass slide
Solution
  • Place the slide together with the lifting coverslip film into xylene for about 10 minutes.
  • This softens the film resin enough for the film to re-adhere to the slide.
  • Air bubbles can be gently removed at this stage.
