If you want to use the slides as soon as possible then be sure that there is 
little or no water under the section. I always give the slide a good shake 
right after draining off the water. this gets rid of any excess water under 
the section. Then put the slides in a 37 deg oven or on a 37 deg hot plate 
for 30 to 60 minutes. With Plus slides this is all you will usually need to 
dry the water and adhere the tissue to the slide.

We are trying to reduce the turn around time on our immunostains.  I'd
like to get an idea of how most people dry their sections on positively
charged slides in diagnostic laboratories.  Time?  Temperature?
Convection Oven?  Microwave Oven?
