Hi Histonet!  I'm hoping to find some first hand experience to try to make my 
life easier.  We recently acquired a Sakura film coverslipper and love it.  We 
do a LOT of IHC staining that uses Ventana's (Roche) Ultramap Red Anti-Ms Alk 
Phos detection kit.  Historically, we've hand-coverslipped all of these slides 
with a xylene-based mounting medium to avoid having the red leach out of the 
tissue over time.  The slides I'm staining need to be of diagnostic quality for 
at least 3 years.  Has anyone been using this detection system with a film 
coverslipper long enough to say that you've had or not had issues?

Thank you for any feedback!
