What are spacer coils? I don't think I've ever heard of them.

I would suggest filing using the spacer coils and then removing them
after 4-7 days.

I was asked to find out how to dry slides quickly. They are glass
coverslipped in an automated coverslipper at the reference lab we use
and the our docs want them filed in less than 12 hours from the time
they are coverslipped. We have been putting them in a 125 degree C
convection oven for a few hours but the slides still get all stuck
together in the file. They will not consider film coverslipping.
Does anyone else file this quickly? I am grateful for any suggestions!
