We use a Black and Decker Steamer.  We purchased ours out of Kmart, but I 
have seen them in Kaufmanns, Walmart, Kmart, and other stores.  It is the 
same kind of steamer that you would use to steam vegatables and rice.  We 
heat the steamer for thirty minutes with the retrieval solution in it, while 
we are running the slides down to water and then we place the slides in the 
pre-heated solution for thirty additional minutes.  After the thirty minutes 
is up we allow the slides to cool for ten more minutes in the citrate
