Interesting!  What methodology are using to remove the coverslip and with 
what difficulty?  I may be interested in changing to this medium.  Are you 
using this same medium with Non-gyn Cytology and have you had any bleeding 
problems?   Also we do not use Xylene.  We use a substitute.

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..

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,
