Apply 3-4 drops of mounting medium directly on top of the specimen and spread out evenly by tilting the slide back and forth or spread evenly with a 0.2 ml plastic pipette tip making sure the tissue is not touched. Excess medium can be removed by touching the edges of slide against a paper towel.5. Let stand at room temperature for about 1 to 2 hours. Or the slides can be heated at 37-40ºC for 40-60 minutes. The slides are ready for visualization under a microscope.
