So as a pathologist, i have to ask you why you would want to air dry a
section?  From a diagnostic perspective, we consider air dried samples
unacceptable in my lab.  All of our standard histologic interpretation
is based on fixed sections.  So, why not drop the slide in a jar or ETOH
and keep it there until you are ready to stain?
