Looks like another place for bionet.microscopy. ;-)
Question - what are you trying to digest?
There's a whole range of things from polylysine to old fashion Haupt's. My
favorite method for welding thick plastic sections to slides is something
I call Jensen's ARG. Protocol follows -
Dissolve 0.5 g gelatin ( I use Sigma G2500 - 300 bloom ) in
100 mls boiling distilled H2O then add 0.06 g CrK(SO4)2 - 12 H2O.
When its all in solution dip slides and allow to dry "standing-up"
in a dustfree area. Store 'em in a box in the fridge and they're
good for months.
I've found this to be a very dependable adhesive.
Hope it helps.
