We use fast dry mounting media from ThermoFisher Scientific - Item# 22 050 102 - that doesn't need extra drying. File the next day with no sticking.. j

Subject: [Histonet] slide file storage to dry slides

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,
