Anyone have anything clever for sealing coverslips with cells expressing green fluorescent protein?
That is, so they don't dry out and can be used on an inverted scope. I asked
Clontech but they had nothing useful to suggest, other than to caution against
nail poish or anything organic. Melted wax works, but is clunky to use and I worry 
about frying cells at the edges of the slip.
