We use MM24 from Surgipath. We file our slides within 24 hours. I don't know if it will work in 12 hours, but maybe it's worth trying.

Hello everyone,
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!
