Good morning, everyone. We have come into possession of a collection of mouse 
ears that were embedded in Araldite and intended for TEM. Most of the thick 
sections are mounted between sheets of Aclar. However, at some point there must 
have been a miscommunication with technician working with the tissue, and some 
of the specimens were mounted on glass slides and coverslipped. We believe 
Permount was used as the mounting medium.

We would now like to re-embed some small pieces of the tissue for ultrathin 
sectioning. Is there a procedure for removing the cover slips and Araldite 
sections from the slides? I can't find anything online or in our old histology
