Hi all -

Yup - I make my own humidified chambers.  I currently use Tupperware boxes
with 10 ml plastic pipettes taped to the bottom of the Tupperware (to lay
the slides on) and a wet Kim wipe in between the pipettes.  The pipettes can
be cut to whatever length is best for each Tupperware size.  Works peachy
and is incredibly versatile - you can move the pipettes into any separation
distance or whatever, the covers fit nice and snug, etc.

Hi Brett,

A long time ago a person in the lab I worked in did large groups of slides
in a 9 X 13 cake pan with lid.  Just put some wet paper towels at the
bottom and let the slides sit on a pair of applicator sticks....  Anyone
still use this method?
