Gelatinising Slides

  • Place slides in slide racks NB: Do not throw out the box the slides come in as you will need to store the gelatinised slides in them.

  • Wash slides in a container with hot running water. (optional)

  • Make up 1% gelatin solution and dissolve by heating in the microwave.

  • Place slides in gelatin solution for 30 – 60 seconds and agitate.

  • Drain off excess and place slides in 0.25% Formalin for 10 seconds whilst agitating.

  • Drain off excess and place in oven at 80oC for 2 – 3 hours to dry slides.

  • Ensure slides are dried thoroughly before storing in an empty slide box at room temperature.
