Good morning all,

We've recently switched from film coverslipping back to glass and
therefore need to thoroughly dry our slides before permanent filing.  I
recall, in my first histology job....30 + years ago, that we used metal
stacking slide files that you could put an insert into the drawers that
looked like a non-stretchy spring.  The wires of this "spring" held the
slides apart to dry, then they could be filed without the "spring" when
they were completely dry.

Anyone know if that product still exists?  Or does anyone have a better
solution for drying slides while still keeping them in order?

Thanks for the assist,
