We let our slides dry for 2 weeks...minimum.  Tell your docs that adequate
drying times are more for their benefit than for your own and perhaps that
will get them to back off.  Otherwise, consider loosely organizing the
drying slides so they are easier to find before they are actually filed,
this is what we do.  Bottom line, slides need time to dry...plain and

Subject: drying slides

My pathologists are complaining about the length of time it takes our slides
to dry before filing.  This creates several stacks of slide folders in my
office until they are filed.   We do not file them until 2-3 weeks after
coverslipping to ensure they do not stick together in the slide file.    We
use a permount type media with our xylene substitute.   The substitute we
use is XS xylene substitute with the permount being, Histo Mount T.    Any
ideas, suggestions???
Please Help!!!!
