Subject: Adhesive for microscopic fossils

Adhesive for microscopic fossils

From: Margaret Cotrufo <margaret.cotrufo>

A researcher at our museum needs an adhesive to glue microscopic
fossils (foraminifera) to a piece of paper.  This makes it easier to
handle the fossils under a microscope.  The glue needs to be
reversible.  Does anyone have suggestions on the type of glue to
use?  The researcher has in the past used gum tragacanth with good
results but can not find a source for it now.
